Estonia's Prime Minister Taavi Roivas has accepted the ice bucket challenge, a sensation currently sweeping the internet to raise money towards a cure foramyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive and fatal motor neuron disease.

The young Prime Minister was doused in a bucket of ice cold water after being nominated by Estonian PR director Tiina Shein. 

Roivas then went on to nominate Estonia's Interior Minister Hanno Pevkur and politician Kalle Palling.

The ice bucket challenge has been done by other former leaders including former U.S. President George W Bush and a series of celebrities.
