It is not every day that we see a politician impressing us with their humility. But Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is not like his other political counterparts.
Rutte accidentally spilled coffee in the Dutch Parliament, but didn’t leave the job to the cleaners. He borrowed a mop and started cleaning up the mess while the cleaners’ applauded him.
Dutch diplomat Cees Van Beek first uploaded the video on Twitter on June 4, and since then his post has been liked and shared by people across the world.

Many called his move an “example of humble leadership”.
Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte spills his coffee, takes mop from cleaner to wipe it up himself. Imagine all politicians were this humble/good humored https://t.co/bnRWkNBFCL also, @MinPres needs a manbag #DenHaag— anna holligan 🎙 (@annaholligan) June 4, 2018
he's actually like that. I've seen him multiple times just biking round The Hague. He's a nice and humble guy (whatever you may think of him politically)— Cees Van Beek 🇳🇱 (@ceesvanbeek) June 4, 2018
The viral video soon caught the attention of Indian social media users who were quick to suggest that politicians back home should take cue.
