New Canon R6 just overheated!

Damn, less than a week old and this thing overheated around 23 min!  So now what?  

How long does this need to cool down and how can I work around this?  I was shooting 4k @ 24p.

The overheating issue in Canon R6 is very disappointing and the recovery time
is also even more annoying. The R5 and R6 are great cameras regardless of
the overheating issue. When it overheats, you need to wait for at least 10 minutes.

Have you updated to the latest firmware? Apparently that greatly improved the overheating problems on these cameras. If yes, then I think you're stuck.
