Depends on what the meaning of “bow” is. Because leaning down to have a medal put over your head is not a bow. How could anyone think otherwise? From LGF:

Please note! Barack Obama is absolutely not bowing to King Abdullah! He’s receiving a medal.

That is not a bow. It’s very, very different from a bow.
