German Chancellor Olaf Scholz attended the G20 Summit in Delhi on September 9, 2023, sporting an eye patch over his right eye. The 65-year-old leader had incurred a minor facial injury while jogging a week earlier on September 2, 2023. Scholz’s spokesperson, Steffen Hebestreit, clarified that it was a “minor scratch above his right eye” and he would wear the eye patch temporarily. Hebestreit reassured that the injury was not serious, and Scholz remained in high spirits. The eye patch sparked discussions on social media, with some humorously likening him to a pirate or a superhero, while others expressed well wishes for his recovery. Chancellor Scholz’s injury didn’t hinder his active participation in the G20 Summit. He engaged with fellow world leaders, including Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden, and delivered a speech advocating global collaboration to tackle climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the conflict in Ukraine.
