These men are stringently trained on how to do this for extended periods in all sorts of elements of weather. I can also hear some folks blaming this event on him having to wear a mask. On a similar but much smaller note, every groom and groomsman is told to never lock your knee as you stand in front of the church as it cuts blood flow and will increase the odds of fainting.
