Viral: Dutch Prime Minister spills his coffee, takes mop to clean it up himself

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.

Check out the video:

However, he had a little trouble with the mop, and the cleaners had to show him how to adapt it to suit his height.

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