Greece’s new Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has taken his first official break as PM, to spend 24 hours with his family on the Holy Island of Tinos.

Prime Minister Mitsotakis travelled to the Cyclades on Saturday afternoon with his wife Mareva and their three children Sophia, Constantine and Daphne.

Mitsotakis stopped and spoke with other parishioners before he entered the church and worshipped the icon of Panagia.

He also said a special prayer at the icon of Agios Constantinos and Agia Eleni, as this icon was donated to the church by Mitsotakis' parents.
