Glasgow : The world leaders have come together at Glasgow for the COP26 climate summit, and the US President Joe Biden is going viral on social media for all the wrong reasons.

As the meeting was underway, the 78-year-old leader was caught on camera, with his eyes closed for a few seconds at the global warming conference. While many reports have said that he was taking a nap, it is not clear that he was actually taking a nap or was taking a brief rest.

A video footage shared by The Washington Post journalist Zach Purser Brown created a huge buzz online, where the POTUS looked visibly tired and struggled to keep his eyes open.

The over 1-minute clip showed Biden applauding the speaker after the aide left, before proceeding to wipe his eyes. As the clip started doing rounds, many debated if he really fell asleep or not while others began to mock him for it.

Check out the video clip below:

Meanwhile, people on social media have shown support for him as they claimed back to back meetings and jet lag can put anyone under tiredness, afterall he is also a human.
