In the text of the wikipedia page about proton proton fusion

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton%E2%80%93proton_chain_reaction

It says that in the first stage, when two protons fuse, a gamma ray proton is produced.  However this is not shown in the diagram, or in anyone elses diagram, or in anyone else's text.   Is the wikipedia page incorrect.   If no gamma ray photon is produced then where does the excess energy (0.42MeV) from this first stage go?
