This is the moment the Scottish Health Secretary hauls it off a mobility scooter in Holyrood – as he runs to discuss the ambulance crisis in Scotland.
Hamza Yusuf had an unfortunate collapse in the main corridor next to Holyrood’s debating chamber on Thursday morning.
TV cameras were installed to capture the MSP before the first minister’s questions.
Mr Youssef, who has been using mobility transport since he ruptured his Achilles tendon playing badminton, was arriving to answer questions from the MSP on Scotland’s ambulance crisis.
And when the SNP minister was sent flying on a scooter, cameras caught him – while an aide ran after him with a pair of crutches.
BBC Scotland political editor Glen Campbell shared the clip on Twitter.
He posted it on Twitter with the caption, “Health Secretary @HumzaYousaf Not having a good day at work…”
Mr Yusuf, however, was upset with the political editor’s tweet.
Taking to social media himself, he said that there is no need to share the video.
He posted: “For all the media scrutiny and never shy away from it.
“Just not sure if there is a need or purpose to tweet a video of me falling while injured.
“If someone else had fallen on crutches, knee scooters, or wheelchairs, would your first instinct be to film it and tweet it?”
But it was a very different reaction from Douglas Ross’s reaction after he was caught on camera in 2018.
At the time, he tweeted: “Best moment of the second half – Douglas Ross MP decked it a belter!
“Can’t wait to see the meme…”
Social media users had a similar reaction to Mr Yusuf’s unfortunate downfall.
One person commented: “Fantastic. The gift that keeps on giving.”
Another said: “Swear this was a parody video.”
Someone else posted: “Denmark’s health minister apparently gets aboard the space hopper.”

The SNP cabinet minister was branded “reckless” for his call amid heavy pressure on the 999 response service, which has seen an average wait of paramedics up to six hours.
He warned that the NHS is facing an “extraordinarily difficult winter”, adding that those who were “picking up the phone to call 999 to call an ambulance” should “consider whether this”. absolutely important”.
