Roberto Schmidt's now infamous photograph of David Cameron, the Danish prime minister Helle Thorning Schmidt and Barack Obama taking a 'selfie' during the Nelson Mandela memorial service in Johannesburg. The photographer wrote in a blog: 'I thought the world leaders were simply acting like human beings, like me and you. I doubt anyone could have remained totally stony faced for the duration of the ceremony, while tens of thousands of people were celebrating in the stadium. For me, the behaviour of these leaders in snapping a selfie seems perfectly natural.'Photograph: Roberto Schmidt/AFP
