German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has published a photo of himself with an eye-patch after he fell while out jogging.

The incident occurred on Saturday near his home in Potsdam, near Berlin.

He cancelled regional election events on Sunday because of the accident, but will attend engagements as normal, including giving numerous public speeches over the next few days.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, he said it "looks worse than it is".

The fall was not serious, but the photo shows some bruising around the eye, as well as on his nose and chin.
