In a hilarious incident, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa was caught struggling with a colourful face mask during a national address on coronavirus and netizens can’t stop laughing on the gaffe.
While addressing the African nation about safety measures, Ramaphosa awkwardly pulled out a mask and struggled to wear it. The face mask ended up becoming an eye mask and the scene reminded social media of Sandra Bullock’s movie Birdbox.
