He further joked about the situation saying that the only difference between him and his grandfather was that ‘he took his ring back’. He also advised people not to carry ‘any electronics to US visa interview’.

To this, Abbot replied, “The security person was very clear that it isn’t their problem. No storage provided inside.”
