Robert Mugabe falls after addressing supporters upon his return from an African Union meeting in Ethiopia.

Press agency photographers are claiming that Mugabe's security men forced them to erase their images after his embarrassing trip on a tiny set of steps upon his return from an African Union meeting.

But it was too late to stop Twitter users who promptly went to work on mocking Zimbabwe's President with the hashtag #MugabeFalls.

Robert Mugabe was promptly picked up by his aides and rushed away into a waiting car. It was unclear whether the 90-year-old was injured in the 'fall'.
