German Chancellor Angela Merkel's body has been seen shaking as she welcomed the new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Germany, raising concerns about her health.

While she waited with Zelensky for the German Armed Forces' honour formation to pass, her legs and body began to tremble.

When she then walked the formation with the president, the trembling had visibly subsided.

At a later press conference Merkel said she she had drunk three glasses of water in the meantime, suggesting she was dehydrated.

As everyone could see, she was feeling very well again, the chancellor added.

Zelensky, who was standing next to Merkel during the incident, said: "She was completely safe."

The 64-year-old chancellor had already shown such trembling on similar occasions before - at that time the reason given had also been that Merkel had not drunk enough water during hot weather.

Germany's Merkel shaking again at event in Berlin



German Chancellor Angela Merkel has appeared unsteady and shaking for the second time in 10 days at a ceremony in Berlin.

The brief incident happened as Merkel stood alongside President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at an indoor event Thursday morning where Germany’s new justice minister was being formally appointed. Merkel was handed a glass of water but rejected it, and appeared fine when she arrived in parliament half an hour later.

On Tuesday last week, Merkel’s whole body shook as she stood outside in hot weather alongside Ukraine’s president. Merkel said afterward that she was fine after drinking three glasses of water, which she “apparently needed.”

Hot weather in Germany has continued this week though temperatures in Berlin dropped overnight.

The 64-year-old Merkel has been German leader since 2005.
