Hand-to-hand contact banned at MWC

If you are flying off to Barcelona for Mobile World Congress later this month, keep your hands behind your back when you get there. 

That's the advice from organisers who've urged people to avoid handshakes to protect exhibitors and delegates from the deadly coronavirus. 

With 100,000 people from 200 countries expected to attend the event, it is feared physical contact could provide a breeding ground for the disease which has put China in lockdown and has already killed 500 people. 

LG has already withdrawn from the event to protect staff.
