Angela Merkel Shakes During National Anthem

The German chancellor Angela Merkel has blamed dehydration after she was seen shaking during a rendition of her national anthem. Merkel was welcoming newly-appointed Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy to the Germany capital. She however grinned widely when later asked by reporters about her condition during the red-carpet reception for Zelenskiy. ‘Since then I’ve drunk at least three glasses of water, which I apparently needed, and now I’m doing very well,’ she said at a press conference.
