Jeremy Corbyn has unwittingly provided the nation with what will surely be considered a photographic classic.
The Labour leader is seen grappling with the lead of Acer the Alsatian during a walkabout in Newport, Wales.
As Corbyn struggles to control Acer, the mischievous hound gives the party boss the runaround, as a mother pushing a pram tries to walk past.
Ducking underneath as a blundering Corbyn attempts to regain control of the situation, the unnamed woman remains serenely calm.
The pictures, captured by snapper Robert Melen on Friday afternoon, have already been used to create a series of memes online.
Corbyn was in the south Wales town for the funeral of veteran Labour MP Paul Flynn, who died last month aged 84.
Corbyn later paid his respects to Flynn, whom he described as a “good friend” and “independent thinker”.
“He had such love for Newport, knowledge of radical South Wales history and a dry wit,” Corbyn said.
