Leo Varadkar was on the receiving end of a belt across the head during the Election Special on RTÉ 2 on Sunday evening. 

The Minister for Health was listening intently as a member of the audience spoke about abortion, when his concentration was distracted by a low hanging boom mic which clocked him in the temple. 

Thankfully it wasn't too serious, and Twitter had good fun with the incident afterwards.
