US President Donald Trump on Thursday, 28 November, tweeted a rather bizarre image of his head cropped on to the bare-chested body of the fictional movie character and American icon, Rocky Balboa.
Trump's post comes after media speculation over his sudden visit to the hospital, but it contains no text to give the image any context.
