The Shark Helps Turnbull Catch Trump

Australian golf legend Greg Norman reportedly helped Malcolm Turnbull become one of the first world leaders to talk personally to his mate Donald Trump soon after his election.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Australia's ambassador to the US, Joe Hockey, contacted Norman asking for Mr Trump's private mobile number soon after his election as US president last week.

"I will say that I have spoken to the Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, and he is on-board with wanting to see President-elect Trump succeed," Norman wrote in an article published yesterday in Newsweek.

Mr Trump and Mr Turnbull had a 15 minute telephone chat the day after Mr Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, with the prime minister describing the discussion as "very warm".

The government has already begun talks with Trump administration advisers as the new president prepares to take over the White House in January.
