What would you expect to happen when the Prime Minister of the Netherlands spills coffee in the lobby of the Dutch Parliament? A hasty clean-up crew? No chance. This Dutch leader wasted no time in acquiring a mop from the cleaning staff and cleaning it up himself!

While it may well have been a publicity stunt, the casualness displayed is still a welcome change from the imperious manner of too many politicians and leaders. And it seemed like the cleaning staff were happy about the role reversal, clapping and cheering for the PM as he toiled.

Since being shot on 4 June, the video has gone viral worldwide.
