Turkey's president fights urge to sleep during news conference

He just could not stay awake

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan fell asleep several times during a joint news conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko in Kiev on Monday evening.

As Poroshenko was delivering his speech, Erdogan - who was sitting next to the Ukrainian president - yawned, struggled to keep his eyes open and fell asleep briefly several times.

Turkish-Ukrainian talks lasted for more than three hours before the two leaders came out to make statements.
