LONDON: A special relationship, or rather a "bromance" - affection shared by two straight males - seems to be blooming between US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron who is currently on a tour of the US, a British daily said Thursday.

Cameron's tour was "all getting a bit touchy-feely", and the two leaders have clearly been trying to make the point they have a special relationship, the Daily Mail commented.

"That always happens when the two leaders of two great nations either side of the Atlantic meet up for a state visit. But this time it seems the pair of pals are letting their hands do the talking."

Cameron and his host Obama have been caught many times on camera "showing exactly how comfortable they are in each others' presence".

"The buddies have been slapping each other on the back, patting shoulders, grasping each other, putting arms round each other and generally being very tactile," it said.

This "burgeoning bromance" has got so friendly that Cameron's wife Samantha "may have been left feeling a little like a spare wheel".

However, first lady Michelle Obama has so far not got in on the act. The two leaders' wives have "barely got close, unlike their husbands".
