Erdogan falling asleep during greetings on behalf of the 'Feast of the Sacrifice'

⁣⁣Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was seen falling asleep for a split second during a taped Eid al-Adha greeting video recorded for members of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). The video quickly became viral on social media on July 21. The president is seen closing his eyes and nodding off for a second between two sentences of his Eid address, quickly recovering to continue with his speech. It was notable for Erdoğan's team to release the video without cutting out the moment in question as the video wasn't broadcast live.
