The German Chancellor Angela Merkel was shaking at a public event for the second time in less than two weeks, rekindling concerns over her health.
The brief incident happened as she stood alongside Germany's President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at a ceremony in Berlin.
The two were attending a farewell ceremony for Justice Minister Katarina Barley, who is taking up a post in the European Parliament.
Mrs Merkel (64) was handed a glass of water but rejected it.
She appeared fine when she arrived in parliament half an hour later.
A spokesman for the German leader dismissed any concerns over her health.
Addressing questions on whether she would take part in the swearing-in of the new minister and this weekend's G20 meeting in Japan, he said: "Everything is taking place as planned."
He added: "The chancellor is fine."

Mrs Merkel first sparked worries after she was spotted shaking vigorously during a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on June 18th.
She dismissed the concerns at the time, saying she was just dehydrated, and felt better after drinking some water.
