Each week we like to highlight some of our favourite topical press photography images of the week as captured by Press Association and Getty photographers. The first week of July has seen the leaders of the G20 meet, including the first face-to-face meeting and handshake between Trump and Putin. Wimbledon is in full swing, without a rain delay (yet). But there have also been smaller news stories that caught our eye. What a busy week it’s been!
