This looks unreal. He looks like a dwarf compared to the size of these guards. Surely, the image has been photoshopped.

French president Francois Hollande is facing ridicule from some of his citizens for looking small in pictures from his first official visit to the United Kingdom.

Hollande inspected the Guard of Honor from the 1st Battalion of the Coldstream Guards on Wednesday during a visit to London.  Hollande, at 5’7”, was photographed alongside a formation of guards wearing their tall black bearskin helmets.

Comments alongside the image on a website of pictures taken by Agence France-Presse, the country’s national news agency, suggested Hollande had fallen into a ‘trap’ made to make him look ridiculous,reports the Daily Mail of London.
