President Obama got swept into the biggest social media trend this year, getting in on a selfie Tuesday. 

Obama was captured in a powerhouse self-portrait along British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt, who took the photo with her smartphone, at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Though not in a selfie, former President George W. Bush struck a quick pose, too, with U2 lead singer Bono. 

Nearly 100 world leaders gathered for the memorial service in Soweto, South Africa, for the anti-apartheid icon.
