After being in news for making many revolutionary decisions recently, the Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz is once again making headlines. Though, this time around, the situation at hand is a little tricky.

The 81-year-old monarch reached Moscow for a three-day visit on Wednesday. Apparently, while descending the golden escalators of his lavish plane, he had to face a rather awkward situation. On the way to the pavement, his escalator broke down midway forcing him to walk all the way.

His historic Russian visit had a jumpy start given that the king was travelling with around 1,000 delegates. The Saudi King is known for his luxurious lifestyle, so when the escalator stopped moving due to some technical glitch, he was left confused.

After waiting for the escalators to start moving for a while, the King had to climb down the stairs with assistants following behind him. It didn't take much longer for the incident to reach the Twitterati who has gone into a frenzy after watching the video.

Here are some miscellaneous tweets pertaining to the viral video:
