JOE Biden appeared to have fallen asleep while attending the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow.
The 78-year-old president was caught on camera folding his arms and gradually dozing off as the conference kicked off.
Did Joe Biden fall asleep at COP26?
Biden's eyes closed for a few seconds before he woke himself but they then shut again for a second time.
He closed his eyes for 30 seconds before a man in a suit came over to stir him awake.
The president then uncrossed his arms and listened to what the staff member was telling him, before applauding the opening speaker.
Viewers quickly caught on to the president's brief nap and began mocking him on social media.
Why was President Biden called 'Sleepy Joe' during the elections?
During the 2020 Presidential election Donald Trump mocked Biden as ‘Sleepy Joe’.
The then president’s jibe was an effort to portray him as being too old for the job, despite him being Biden’s junior by only three years.
Joe Biden is the oldest-ever president and turns 79 this month.
Trump's mockery came after Biden acquired a reputation for gaffes.
They included mixing up Trump and Bush as well as mistaking his wife for his sister.
What did Joe Biden say at COP26
The President took to the stage to deliver a speech in which he said more needs to be done to tackle climate change.
“This is a decisive decade in which we have an opportunity to prove ourselves” he told those assembled in Glasgow.
“We can keep the goal of limiting global warming to just 1.5C if we come together.
“We’re still falling short. There’s no more time to hang back or sit on the fence or argue amongst ourselves. This is a challenge of our collective lifetimes.”
