Is he sleeping or is he listening intently? A Twitter video shows how the US president closes his eyes several times at the opening event of the UN climate conference.
Glasgow – US President Joe Biden visibly struggled with fatigue at the opening event of the UN climate conference COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland on Monday.
A video that circulated on Twitter showed the 78-year-old President of the United States closing his eyes several times while listening to a speech with his arms crossed. Only when a young man speaks to him does he seem a little more awake again.

He claps at the end of the speech, but also rubs his eyes right away. Biden had only arrived from Rome on Monday for the G20 summit to kick off the conference. dpa
