French president Emmanuel Macron sure knows how to leave a mark.

Macron and president Donald Trump exchanged another awkward handshake Friday night at the G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec. And this time Macron's grip left pale marks on Trump's hand.

While posing for photographs at the summit Macron, 40, patted Trump, 71, on the arm and then grabbed his hand to shake it, reports Daily Mail.

The grip didn't last nearly as long as the two leader's previous cringeworthy handshake last July in Paris, but Macron's firm grasp left Trump's hand turning a pale color.

Other photos snapped of the men's hold shows Macron with a stern look on his face as he appears to pull Trump's hand towards his body.

"We have a very really good relationship, very special," Trump told reporters after Friday's handshake, according to Yahoo.

The picture of Trump's discolored hand quickly went viral, sparking hilarious reactions from social media users.

One Twitter user named Nick Wenmaekers tweeted that Macron won "the handshake game".

Another user, named Jimvj said the French president showed Trump "that 2 can play that game".

"It was Trump who transformed a simple handshake into a weird vomit inducing act of machismo: yanking the other person, & holding on for a very long time. Point, set & match to Macron," he posted.

Last July, at the Bastille Day celebration Trump shook Macron's hand before leaving and held on to it for an agonizing 29 seconds. Even as Macron tried to pull away, Trump kept a tight grasp on his counterpart's hand before eventually letting go.
