President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo recently shared his first video blog (vlog) on his social media accounts.

Antara News Agency reported that the President uploaded two videos on Saturday. The first video shows Jokowi standing in front of the presidential plane before heading to Maguwoharjo Stadium in Sleman, Yogyakarta, to attend the 2017 President’s Cup soccer competition.

“Now, I will fly to the 2017 President’s Cup tournament at Maguwoharjo Stadium in Yogyakarta. Do not forget to watch the match and keep up the sporting spirit [and] play fair. Let's support national soccer,” he said.
