Photos of Zimbabwe President Have Gone Viral

An Associated Press photo of Robert Mugabe falling off steps of a raised podium has become a meme.

After an AP photo of Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe falling down was published, internet users uploaded photo collages of Mugabe with hashtag #MugabeFalls to global networks, writes Mashable.

The original photo was made at the Harare airport where Magabe was giving a speech on a raised podium. Stepping down from the podium, 90-year old Mugabe slipped and fell. His security team quickly attempted to force photographers to delete images of the falling president, but one of the photos leaked to the internet. The image became a meme with Mugabe as figure skater, a horse ruder, a surfer and an athlete.
