Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 2064:
David Cameron & Boris Johnson - Wincing at Wimbledon

David Cameron and Boris Johnson have essentially identical nonverbal expressions as they watch Andy Murray in the recent Wimbledon final. This classic body language of both the U.K.'s Prime Minister and London's Mayor indicate they are feeling Pain and Fear-Empathy for Murray as they watch Murray lose in the fourth and final set to Roger Federer.

While often feigned, sincere empathy as exhibited above, is a very welcomed and all-too-rare quality to see in our leaders.

Good Luck at the Olympic Games Andy.
