German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been seen shaking for a third time in a month.
Video footage shows Mrs Merkel trembling, shaking back and forth alongside Finland's prime minister during a ceremony in Berlin on Wednesday.

After the incident, Mrs Merkel said she was "very well" and there was "no need to worry".

A government spokesperson said she would continue meetings as planned.

Mrs Merkel, 64, was last seen trembling two weeks ago ahead of a trip to Japan for the G20 summit. She told journalists at the summit she was fine.

I hope she's OK, but it's none of our business really.

I understand that health is considered a private matter in German politics.

Probably the dust in her uterus has turned gangrene and causing toxic shock.

Nothing. Not gangrene though.

The more she tells people not to worry and that it is nothing the less people will believe her each time it happens. However, it is none of our business. Although I do hope she is able to see out the rest of her tenure without incident in terms of her actual health.

She's the leader of one of the most powerful countries on earth.Shockingly women do have abilities other than popping children out.If she doesn't want children it's absolutely nothing to do with you.

She really should see a doctor though instead of saying she "is well" when she isn't.

Shockingly, all of them come secondary to that main function. I never said it had anything to do with me, I'm commenting on it.

Erm no they don't.Women don't exist to have kids.A woman is perfectly entitled to go her entire life without reproducing if that's what she wants.If it's nothing to do with you then why are you commenting? Saying she's gonna get gangrene because her uterus is ' dusty' is repulsive and positively prehistoric.Maybe instead of questioning why she isn't growing something in her belly you could try growing something between your ears?

She’s an appalling leader. Tried her best to ruin Germany.

Despite saying that I hope she is fit and well, no one should wish ill on anybody no matter their beliefs or political affiliation.
