Not the King of Bahrain On the other hand, Latestly media on Saturday (15/8/2020) revealed that the man in the video is not the King of Bahrain, the Emir of Bahrain.
In fact, the short video, about 30 seconds long, features a man wearing a thobe and ghutra, followed by a giant robot, in a crowded area. The people around him were busy taking pictures when the robot came out of the place.
Many Twitter users shared the video on the microblogging platform, identifying the man as Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and the robot, his bodyguard.
However, the video is not from 2020, and the claims are fake.
The man is not the Emir of Bahrain, and the robot is not his bodyguard.
It is known that the robot in the video is named Titan which is on display during a security exhibition called the International Defense Exhibition (Idex) in Abu Dhabi.
The man seen in the video appears to be exhibition staff, but is definitely not the Emir of Bahrain.
