It seems I wasn't the first reporter today to ask to have my picture taken with Archbishop Desmond Tutu when I turned up to interview him this morning.
Luckily the woman from The Henley Management College who had invited him to London was very good humoured about taking the pictures.
And the Archbishop himself was extremely good humoured about the queues of journalists waiting to interview him about anything and everything. I followed after a team from Channel 4's Dispatches had asked him about Burma. BBC Radio 4 had him record a charity appeal for TB. And I waited outside while Sky asked him about everything - at great length.
Just as we were about to start our interview we were interrupted by the arrival of the Archbishop's luggage. 36 hours after he had first arrived in London. We couldn't really object when he wanted to unpack before we began the interview. Even living legends need clean underwear.
It was an honour to meet Desmond Tutu for the first time. It was also the first time I've ever joined in a prayer before doing an interview. And the first time I've been called "My dear child" while trying to ask searching questions about poverty in Africa.
