The picture has now gone viral and people have made some hilarious edits.
The photo has been shared on Twitter hundreds of times by fans, but some have added their own twist to it.

Popular Twitter page Ireland Simpsons Fans decided to get in on the action and created their own spin.
Taking inspiration from the cartoon, the page referenced an episode where Homer was tricked into watching a bee.

Poor Drake was talked about a lot online and not in a good way.
One person said that Conor McGregor lost his match because of ‘The Curse of Drake’.

The Canadian artist has been a supporter of Conor for years and was part of the Irish man’s entourage for the recent fight.
The pair first met in 2016 ahead of Conor’s first match against Nate Diaz.
Speaking to UFC’s Megan Olivi in November that year, Conor revealed how he met Drake.
He said: ‘I’m a big fan of Drake. I had a meeting with Jimmy Iovine of Apple and he invited me to [his] show.
‘I’d spoke to Drake before the first Diaz fight – he reached out and messaged me – and we’ve been in contact since then.
‘I went and met him backstage and he was a cool guy. Another man at the top of his game, it was a great night.’
