Meet your President, the newest citizen of selfie nation.

The memorial service today for Nelson Mandela, the former South African president who died on Dec. 5 at age 95, was a four-hour affair. At some point, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt posed for a photo with her seat-mates: U.S. President Barack Obama and U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron.

It’s not technically a funeral selfie since it occurred at a memorial service, but the Internet is calling it that nonetheless.
