CZECH REP: Prez Zeman Denies Being Drunk At Ceremony; Blames The Flu.
New President Milos Zeman had an ready explanation for his unsteady appearance at a recent public ceremony of the rarely seen Czech royal jewels.
He had a virus.
A video of the event shows him staggering, even aided by a cardinal and later propped-up against a wall.
The video has resulted in tons of comments and gags on social media.
It is not the first time Zeman has appeared drunk in public.
He has never been shy about his alcohol consumption.
