A photo of President Rodrigo Duterte joining a "boodle fight" with top officers of the 4th Infantry Division Command Post in Butuan City last June 17, 2017 leaked online.

In the said photo, at least two of the military officers are putting on their plastic gloves before participating the boodle fight.

A boodle fight is known for being a part of the military tradition where men in uniform gather together around a pile of food spread out on banana leaves.

In a boodle fight, diners are expected to use their hands to grab and feed themselves up before the food runs out as a show of brotherhood and equality.

In the said photo, Duterte and Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana didn't mind using their bare hands in the food galore, two officers beside them apparently felt squeamish having to touch their food.

The president has been in close monitor and contact with the soldiers since the Maute group seized Marawi City.
