Watch the moment Boris Johnson broke his menorah — seconds

There they were presented with a menorah – it was Chanukah, after all.

It took Johnson mere seconds to wave his gift in the air, like a footballer hoisting aloft the World Cup, and sent parts of the candelabra flying across the stage.

As Yair Lapid roared with laughter, the prime minster and Lord Polak scrambled around the floor of the stage to collect the pieces and restore the menorah to its former glory.
