Julian Assange’s arrest and ejection from the Ecuadorian embassy has been big news today.
But Twitter seems more interested in the Wikileaks founder’s new look.
He was sporting a white beard as he was bundled into the police van by officers.
And Assange bears a striking resemblance to Only Fools and Horses character Uncle Albert.
The phrase “Uncle Albert” is trending on Twitter.
Since entering the embassy, on June 19 2012, Assange has grown a full Santa beard and shaved his head.
And practically everyone has seen the Uncle Albert comparison straight away.
And once the phrase started trending, even more people enjoyed the fact that the “freedom fighter” had suddenly become the funniest thing on social media.
