Netizens have opined that President Halimah Yacob appeared “awkward” and “uneasy” as she was enveloped in a circle by national swimmers who treated her to a swim cheer, earlier this week. The President had been visiting Team Singapore athletes from swimming at the OCBC Aquatic Centre on Tuesday as they were training for the Aug 18-Sept 2 Asian Games, when this happened:

One Facebook group, EMONIGHTSG, even created a rather hilarious remix of the video, setting the swim cheer to American rock song ‘The Downfall of Us All’ by A Day to Remember:
