Ekaterini Sakellaropoulou was sworn in as Greece's first female President in Athens on Friday. Footage shows her meeting with her predecessor Prokopis Pavlopoulos. They avoided handshakes, which some reports suggested was because of the coronavirus outbreak. Footage also shows both of them speaking inside the mansion, before Pavlopoulos departing alone. Sakellaropoulou, a 61-years-old senior judge, became the first woman to be elected to the largely ceremonial post in Greece. Mandatory credit: AMNA
