The uncomfortable video images have been captured at the moment when the Australian prime minister is forced to appear before an amateur enthusiast.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison attended Friday's AFL showdown between Melbourne Football Club and Geelong Cats at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
ScoMo, as he calls himself, was filmed upon entering the ground, but he stopped to shake hands with a puzzled Geelong fan.

Uncomfortable video footage has captured the moment when Prime Minister Scott Morrison is forced to appear before a footy fanatic
The Prime Minister asked the soccer fan if the Cats would go well in the next match and wished him good luck.
The apparently unconscious footy fan followed with a question.
& # 39; What's your name, then? & # 39; I ask.
Mr. Morrison responded with a smile and a handshake, responding: "My name is ScoMo."
The video was shared on Twitter by 9news where users of social networks responded to the uncomfortable greeting.
& # 39; That's so … shaky & # 39; tweeted a person.

The seemingly careless fan asked for Mr. Morrison's name and the prime minister replied: "My name is ScoMo."
Poor bastard. He approached for a public relations handshake, then his team lost. All night rotten for him, "wrote another.
Other users drew attention to the fact that the prime minister addressed himself as "ScoMo", instead of Scott or Mr. Morrison.
"One thing that people should never do … be called by their nickname, especially when they are lame and you are the prime minister FFS," argued a Twitter user.
– God, Scott. And that's your name, is not it? Neither a PM nor a president in the world have given themselves a nickname. Silly, foolish, he tweeted another.
Mr. Morrison has ScoMo & # 39; next to his name on his official Facebook page.
