New Bond villain? German chancellor tweets photo with eye patch after jogging fall

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz tweets a pirate-style picture of himself with a black eye patch and dark-red bruises on the right side of his face — the result of a jogging accident on the weekend.

“Am excited to see the memes,” the chancellor writes in the caption.

To deflect any possible worries about his health, on the photo, which appears to have been taken at the chancellery, Scholz smiles slightly and also writes: “Thanks for the well wishes, it looks worse than it is!”

Scholz fell while jogging on Saturday and sustained bruises to his face, prompting him to cancel some appointments over the weekend, the government said.
