Hours after officially leaving Parliament, former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was seen with a pint in his hand.
Mr. Turnbull's resignation on Friday afternoon has left the Liberal Party in crisis before a crucial partial election in its Sydney electorate, which could see the Coalition lose its one-seat majority.
He had a beer in his hand and a smile on his face during his farewell drinks at the Oak Hotel in the suburb of Double Bay that night.

Exactly one week ago Mr. Turnbull was superbly replaced by Scott Morrison who became the fifth prime minister of Australia in five years.
On the same day he announced his resignation, Mr. Turnbull's belongings were abandoned in Parliament and in the back of a moving van before being delivered to his door in the affluent suburbs of eastern Sydney.
His wife Lucy was represented supervising the chaotic movement, talking with the deportation workers and policemen who were watching.
Turnbull announced that he and Lucy would flee from political madness in favor of a few weeks vacation in New York, where the couple owns a two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan that they bought for $ 4.5 million in 2012.

The Liberal Party fell in the latest poll, in a sign that voters could punish the government for slashing Mr. Turnbull.
Turnbull will choose vacations abroad before joining the Liberal campaign to retain the seat, although polls suggest that Wentworth could fall to Labor for the first time in history.
The by-elections in the wealthy Sydney electorate of Turnbull could be held on October 6.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tony Smith, said in a statement that he was considering possible dates of election.
Turnbull has been criticized by former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce for refusing to remain in Parliament until the next election, scheduled for May next year.
Joyce, who separated from Turnbull over an issue that Joyce had with a former employee, said that "people will be really disappointed" by Turnbull's decision not to fulfill his three-year term.
