President Cyril Ramaphosa has been a busy man during the month of October as he travelled through Europe attending summits.
Soon after he landed in Russia, it seems his busy schedule may have caught up with him.
While attending a bilateral meeting in Sochi, images have emerged which seem to indicate that the president may have been caught napping.
The event celebrates the relationship between the Russians and the African continent.
During the SABC's coverage of the Russia-Africa Summit, a video screenshot caught Ramaphosa with his eyes closed.
