The video below which has since gone viral shows German Chancellor Angela Merkel visibly shaking when their National Anthem was being played.
Merkel, who turns 65 next month, was standing next to visiting Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy, at a welcoming ceremony in Berlin.
Many people who saw it happen live and those who watched the video expressed concerns over her health
A reporter approached her about 90 minutes after the event and asked to know what happened, but the Chancellor smiled and said:
“I’ve drunk at least three glasses of water and so I’m doing fine.”
Obviously, she was dehydrated. The incident happened at 1:30 p.m local time and temperature was reportedly high.
The visiting Ukrainian president Zelensky, 41, joked about the incident, stating that he would have come to Merkel’s rescue if necessary.
“She was standing next to me and completely safe,” he said. Lol
