Chinese Premier Li Keqiang (left) and his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau (right) share a sporty moment during a visit to renowned ice hockey team Montreal Canadiens at the weekend.

Mr Li, who is on the first visit to Canada by a Chinese head of government in 13 years, was presented with a Montreal Canadiens jersey emblazoned with his name and the No. 1. "It fits me well," said Mr Li, who added that with the jersey he was now an honorary member of Montreal Canadiens.

The leaders dropped the first puck for a training match - before facing off against some of the players on Saturday.
