President Donald Trump played golf with Prime Minister Abe and Hideki Matsuyama during his visit to Japan.

A golf bunker is known colloquially as the beach, but this was no day at the beach for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

While playing a round of golf Sunday with President Trump and PGA golfer Hideki Matsuyama at the Kasumigaseki Country Club, Abe took a tumble as he walked out of a bunker.

Abe had taken a shot and was running up the bunker. After reaching the top, he seemed to lose his balance and fell back.

It didn’t appear that Trump or Matsuyama noticed, but a Japanese television station was shooting video from a helicopter:
