Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is just a few days away from a general election.
During a campaign stop in the northwest city of Pontevedra Wednesday evening, this happened...
A 17-year-old boy standing next to the P.M. clocked him right in the face.
According to Spanish newspaper El Païs, the teen was arrested after he broke Rajoy's glasses with the punch.
A witness told the newspaper the teen approached the leader and put his hand on Rajoy's shoulder, seemingly to take a photo, when he suddenly decked him.
The prime minister's security detail quickly subdued the teen, although he reportedly landed a blow on one of them too.
"I'm very happy I did it," the teen reportedly told police.
Naturally, someone has already edited the clip to add some wrestling commentary.
After the beat-down, Rajoy had a visible red mark on his face and neck.
But during a rally later that night, the (physical) bruises had mostly disappeared.
"Heartfelt thanks for the displays of affection and solidarity I've received this afternoon," Rajoy later wrote on Twitter. "Let's keep working."
