Unable to get Client IP

We configured a Tomcat behind Apache web server and all HTTP & HTTPS requests are served by Tomcat via Apache web server. The issue is we are able to see client IP in apache logs but on the tomcat end it shows Apache web server IP as client IP. How to get the actual Client IP on the Tomcat side? I believe this can be achieved by some config changes on the Apache end. But not sure what needs to be changed here? any help would be appreciated.
