King Abdullah II of Jordan surprised a group of his subjects by helping them move their car, which had got stuck in snow in the capital Amman.

According to a video posted online, the king, who was touring the capital, got out of his vehicle and pushed the citizens' car which had become stranded in the snow.

After the car was successfully moved, the people surrounded the king and chanted: "Long live his majesty the king."

The move went down well on social media, with many Jordanians sharing the video.
