Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was the second world leader to congratulate US President-elect Donald Trump after golfing legend Greg Norman passed on his private ­mobile number and helped ­facilitate the phone call.

Within hours of Mr Trump’s shock win, Australia’s US ambassador Joe Hockey had contacted The Shark (Greg Norman) asking him for the Republican president-elect’s mobile number for Mr Turnbull.
