Survivalist and Christian Bear Grylls has shared a photo of US President Barack Obama praying with him before recording an episode of NBC's Running Wild with Bear Grylls …

He quoted a verse from 1 Corinthians 13: 7: "Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres".

President Obama also posted a selfie with Grylls on the White House Instagram account.

An NBC press statement before the recording said: "President Obama will become the first US president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Bear Grylls. The visit will be taped and aired on NBC later this year."

The president took part in a three-day trip to Alaska aimed at showing the effects of climate change, backing his call for action on the issue.
