Iceland President faints, breaks nose in hot bath
Iceland’s President Gudni Johannesson said he fainted and broke his nose while taking a hot bath. But the president of the least populous nation on earth said he is now feeling fine despite that he also hit his forehead during the doomed bath.
“A warm and cosy bath last night turned out to be too hot and cosy,” the 49-year-old academic said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
Johannesson, a former history professor, said he was immediately rushed to a hospital where he received stitches. He said he was feeling fine.
The president of the island nation with a population of 345,000 holds largely a ceremonial role.
