Stolen Picasso painting found after nine years by Greek police drops on floor

During a presentation of the painting at a news conference at the citizens protection ministry on Tuesday, (June 29) by officials from the ministry, police department and culture ministry, the painting was perched on a table top, where at one point it slipped to the floor.

An official, not wearing gloves, quickly picked it up, and put it back on the table. It did not appear to have been damaged by the fall.
