Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin has hit back at critics who have questioned her behaviour in leaked footage.

Once dubbed the coolest ever prime minister in the world, Ms Marin can be seen in footage at a party singing and dancing.

Critics of the 36-year-old Prime Minister have argued she should be focussing on the cost-of-living crisis hitting the country.

But Ms Marin has defended her actions in the video stating she had nothing to hide and would still socialise with her friends.

She said: "I haven't used drugs, I haven't used anything other than alcohol.

""I have nothing to conceal or hide, and I haven't done anything illegal."

She added: " These are private videos and are not intended for the public," she said, before adding that she would continue to trust her friends despite the leak.

"I'm still going to be friends with my friends."

Ms Marin became the world's youngest prime minister when she was elected in 2019.

She has since been pictured socialising at parties and music festivals, with many praising her approach.

However, Ms Marin was forced to apologise after separate footage of her dancing at a Helsinki nightclub until 4am surfaced after she had come into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid.

Sports presenter Aleksi Valavuori has urged Ms Marin to resign.

He said: "Some been saying she’s cool, maybe among other teenagers.

"She is by far the most incompetent prime minister we ever had. Knows nothing. Please take your leather jacket and resign."
