A clumsy waiter has been filmed accidentally tipping five pints of beer down German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s back.
The soggy mishap occurred at the Christian Democratic Union’s Ash Wednesday event in Demmin.
The hapless waiter has been identified as Martin D, Metro reported.
He told Bild: “A colleague should have brought her the beer. But she was so nervous, she asked me to do it for her.
"I was shoved from behind, and tried to catch the beers, but it was too late."
Mrs Merkel took it in her stride however, breaking into a broad grin, flicking her hair and then raising a toast.
Good for her.
