During his ongoing US trip to attend the United Nations General Assembly, PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi gave his first international interview to CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

In the interview that focused on deteriorating Pak-US relations, Amanpour broached an unexpected topic near the end: the PM's love for skydiving.

PM Abbasi revealed that he has an adventurous side... or at least, he used to.

He explained, "I'm a pilot, mostly been a pilot for 40+ years." (Fun fact: The PM also owns the private airline AirBlue!)

He continued, "Skydiving has also been a passion, but I've gotten too old for that now."

Does that mean no more skydiving on the weekends, Amanpour asks.

"No, not anymore, I think."

How does the PM chill during downtime now, we wonder...
