THE UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has become the latest public figure to dance ‘Gangnam Style’.

South Korean rapper Psy attempted to teach the diplomat the popular dance from his world wide hit during a visit to the UN headquarters in New York.

The normally dignified and restrained Secretary General admitted he was “nervous” – however he still attempted to copy the wacky dance from the song.

Earlier, Ban Ki-moon had joked: "I was thinking about you when you were coming, you know we have tough negotiations in the United Nations. In such a case I was thinking of playing the Gangnam Style dance so that everybody would stop and dance - maybe you can bring UN style."

The South Korean rapper has seen his song ‘Gangnam Style’ take the web by storm, having received well over half a billion views so far.

He was at the UN to discuss how he could work with the organisation to promote peace.
