Anthony Albanese awkwardly turned his back on cameramen before plunging into a sausage roll after becoming embarrassed during a visit to a polling station.
The Prime Minister made the bizarre gesture while visiting a polling booth in the Ryde constituency in north-west Sydney on Saturday.
He had turned up to support Labor candidate Lyndal Howison in the NSW general election and decided to round off his visit with a sausage roll.

Mr Albanese seemed to become aware of his meal as cameramen swarmed around him.
His political associates have previously been ridiculed for the way they ate the election favorite snack.
Former Labor leader Bill Shorten was mercilessly pilloried for biting the side of his sausage rolls in 2016, while Peter Dutton awkwardly ate a Dagwood dog at a Brisbane carnival in 2022.
Mr. Albanese tried to avoid the same embarrassing fate by holding a paper plate in front of his sausage rolls.
“You’re going to try to shoot the sausage, that’s not going to happen,” he said.
Mr Albanese then turned his back on the cameramen before taking a hearty bite of the sausage roll.
Ms. Howison found the humor in the situation and stood in front of the cameramen to block their view.
Working Bennelong member Jerome Laxale laughed as he tried to protect Mr Albanese with his blazer.
Mr. Albanese seemed to get the perfect bite, although he made a fuss about it.
NSW Labor Party leader Chris Minns was busy spending his morning mingling with voters at Panania Public School in Sydney’s inner south-west.
He managed to take a moment to stir the pot, revealing the unusual way he was enjoying his sausage roll.

“I’m going controversially with mustard and tomato, I’m worried that’s going to put off a few voters,” he said.
“I don’t know, I’m worried now.”
His revelation came when the Democracy Sausage website chronicled the best place to get a hook on the vote.
Meanwhile, chef Josh Niland is offering sizzling sausages with white bread, tomato jam and grilled onions for $16 at outlets in Waterloo and Paddington, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Mr Perrottet is seeking a fourth straight term for his Liberal-National coalition, while Mr Minns is hoping to bring Labor back into government for the first time in 12 years.
The opposition leader admitted he was “deeply superstitious” and did not change his routine on the morning of election day.
“So same breakfast, same coffee at the exact same time,” he told the Today Show on Saturday morning.
“I did a workout at the exact same minute. Yes, I am deeply superstitious.”
Mr Minns revealed he had managed to get a good night’s sleep for the first time in a while.
“I don’t know if that’s a good or bad omen,” he said.
“We are bright and early at the stands. Just encourage everyone to go out and vote for the local candidates. It is time for a change.’
Mr Perrottet appeared calm and revealed he had texted Mr Minns the night before wishing him well and had texted his predecessor, Gladys Berejiklian.
“We texted each other and you know she’s been a great support to me,” he said.
“Of course we worked very closely together for five years in my previous role as Treasurer.
“She was a great Prime Minister and it’s been our team over the past decade that has really taken NSW from being the worst performing economy to being the strongest.”
