He was immediately noticed by those present who raised their mobile phones to record him.-, while a female voice is heard saying "Hi".

Boris Johnson in a friendly mood raised his hand and said Hi too.

His wife, Carrie Symonds, was also caught on camera with him in front of the supermarket's refrigerators.

The British Prime Minister, wearing a shirt and jacket without a tie, did his shopping himself at the local supermarket chain and, according to local media, he tried to ask himself in broken Greek if there was semi-skimmed milk.

Boris Johnson paid for the products he bought himself and on his way out got into one of his security vehicles that were waiting for him outside the supermarket.

It is recalled that Boris Johnson and his family maintain special ties with Greece and a wonderful country house in Pelion, in Horto, which they visit every summer.

The view from their house in Pelion:

The house is built with the traditional Pelion architecture and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a swimming pool.

It is noted that Boris Johnson is a lover of Greek culture and even speaks ancient Greek.

It is recalled that a sample of his knowledge of Greek was demonstrated at the United Nations General Assembly on climate change in April 2021, when he recited Sophocles.

"Sophocles said:” πολλὰ τὰ δεινὰ κοὐδὲν ἀνθρώπου δεινότερον πέλει. ” The person “suffers” and the word “fearful” is not the correct translation of the word “suffering”. Sophocles meant that the human species is beautiful. It’s scary, but admirable," he said.

The phrase used by Boris Johnson comes from Sophocles' Antigone and in modern Greek it is translated as "many are terrible things, but nothing is more terrible than man", wanting to point out that all people are capable of good, but as much as evil.
