German Chancellor Olaf Scholz 'not doing well' and cancels events after 'accident'

Olaf Scholz has cancelled all events after an “accident” and is “not doing well”.

Michael Roth, a German SDP politician, said: “The Chancellor had a sports accident on Saturday, he’s not doing so well, and unfortunately, all events have to be cancelled, including his visit to Heringen.”

Scholz fell while jogging and suffered bruises on his face, a spokeswoman for the federal government said on Saturday.

The German Chancellor was expected in Heringen, Hesse, on Sunday for election campaign dates.

However, a spokesperson assured that no further engagements would be affected by the injury.
