Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was on his way to a cabinet meeting when he spilled his coffee going through security gates.
What he did next has won the approval of social media as – rather than apologising and going on to his appointments – he took the mop from the cleaner and cleaned it up himself, even taking a cloth to wipe down the security gate.
Apart from the bemused people walking into parliament, a group of cleaners came out to cheer him on.

However, he had a little trouble with the mop, and the cleaners had to show him how to adapt it to suit his height.
True democracy, true leadership, no luxuriousness, no circle of sycophants and apple-polishers, no protocol, true public servant not ruler, simple & humble style of politics 👇

Rutte has often appreciated for doing tasks not expected from a Prime Minister.
