I felt the very same. Surprised someone didn’t step in, as she was clearly not well at all.

Nah- she’s just realised that she’s forgotten to put her absorbent dunghampers on and is bursting to go!

Remember he is/was a comedian, looks to me like he told her an English year 3 joke about 5 minutes before (Year 7 jokes have been fatal to Germans If no pre warning given)

No that is Tess, she has T1DM.

Don't know that Merkel has Diabetes.

As an aside, is knowing such personal details about those in power appropriate or required? If Merkel has Type 1, or any other condition, that's between her and her medics surely?

Of course, it's different if such conditions have been freely publicised as some do for charity or better health campaigns.

I'm with @Spooky and @Sir Morley Steven in that it was uncomfortable to see, I'm glad she's now Ok and why on earth did no-one do anything?
