Prime Minister David Cameron double fist-pumps the air in triumph next to a violent psychopath flipping the V; yes, social media mickey-takes of the PM have gone viral again.

Twitter jokers have pasted into a series of incongruous situations a snap of the PM taken as Chelsea FC defeated Bayern Munich to lift the Champion’s League, last weekend.

Here is Mr Cameron standing arms aloft behind a rank of truncheon-wielding police officers in a street battle with protesters.

Or there is England World Cup hero Bobby Moore, carried shoulder high in 1966 by team-mates - with D-Cam also in the scrum.

Yet another cut-and-paste job puts the Prime Minister on a poster for the hard-drugs film Trainspotting, next to over-indulgent madman; Begbie.

Considering what can happen in the House of Commons bars, maybe that last one is not so far-fetched.

The photo of Mr Cameron’s tight-lipped jubilation was taken at US President Barak Obama’s Camp David retreat, on Saturday.

But isolating the PM in the shot excludes another image surely ripe for comedy: German Chancellor Angela Merkel wearing a thunder-struck expression as trophy favourites Munich crash to defeat at home in the Allianz Arena.

It was an apt look considering the long list of problems facing leaders of the G8 countries gathered there.
