Reading Time: < 1 minute

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been seen shaking in public for the third time in less than a month.

Merkel’s body shook as she stood outside with Finnish PM Antti Rinne while watching military honours in Berlin to mark his arrival.

“The chancellor is fine and the talks with the Finnish prime minister are going on as planned,” a government spokesman said after the incident.

The chancellor was first seen shaking uncontrollably during her reception of Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskiy in Berlin on 18 June, but later said she felt better after drinking some water. Merkel was seen shaking again as she met German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on 27 June in her second such bout within two weeks.

Her spokesman said at the time she was fine and she later headed off to Japan for the G20 summit.
