Bahrain king, Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa arrived at Dubai airport with a robot bodyguard.

A video circulating on social media titled 'Bahrain king arrived at Dubai airport with his robot bodyguard' is false.

On research, we found that the person in the viral video with the robot is not the King of Bahrain, Hamad Bin Isa Aa Khalifa. The robot, which people claimed was a security guard, was a commercial entertainment robot named Titan, which was developed by the British company Cyberstein. The video was captured in the 2019- International Defence Exhibition (Idex) event in which Titan walked through the crowd and introduced himself in Arabic and English. The robot Titan is 8ft tall and weighs 60kgs.

Hence, the video of robot Titan walking in an event is shared on social media with a false claim.
