German Chancellor Angela Merkel was seen trembling uncontrollably at an official ceremony today.
The 64-year-old’s body shook uncontrollably as she stood next to visiting Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, whom she was welcoming to her office building with military honours.
The incident has led people to express concerns for her health.
The video sparked concerns and Merkel has now reacted to it, saying she was just a bit dehydrated in the heat.
At a news conference which held about 90 minutes later, a reporter asked about Merkel’s health and she smiled and said: “I’ve drunk at least three glasses of water and so I’m doing fine.”
Zelensky, 41, also joked about the incident. He said that he would have come to Merkel’s rescue if necessary.
“She was standing next to me and completely safe,” he said.
