In a display of gallantry not often seen in the world of politics, Hungary's Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany came to the aid of government spokesperson Bernadett Budai when she fainted during a news conference on Sunday.

Budai, 29, who was reportedly suffering from a bout of the flu, is shown in video footage of the conference attempting to walk off the stage.

She appears disoriented however and proceeds to crash into the Prime Minister, before swaying and fainting in his arms.

Gyurcsany, who nearly fell over himself when Budai collided with him, quickly regained his composure and carried her off the stage.
