A photo that has been shared on Twitter has people divided - they can't agree that the snap is for real.

The photo shows Zimbabwe's former leader, Robert Mugabe, sitting in a wheelchair wearing an Adidas tracksuit, and he doesn't look all too healthy.

It has been reported that Mugabe is not doing great health-wise (he is very old, so it's understandable), but there are people who refuse to believe the man in the photo is Mugabe.

Perhaps it's the tracksuit that throws people off, or maybe they don't want to believe he can be so old. Either way, people commented on the photo, saying that's not him.
