Having escaped a swarm of bees as she boarded her plane in Malawi, US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has been videoed enjoying herself during the South Africa leg of her foreign tour.
A smiling and laughing Clinton did her bit for diplomacy by dancing with her hosts in packed ballroom.
In April she was photographed relaxing in a club with a beer during a trip to in Cartagena, Colombia, leading president Obama to joke at the annual White House correspondents dinner:
"Despite many obstacles, much has changed during my time in office," the president said.
"Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton. Four years later she won't stop drunk-texting me from Cartegana."
Somehow it is harder to imagine British foreign secretary William Hague being able to pull of similar dance moves quite so effortlessly.
