It's definitely one of the more bizarre selfies we've seen recently.

As Prime Minister David Cameron took Chinese President Xi Jinping to Manchester City's ground, Sergio Aguero couldn't resist a photo opportunity.

Mr Xi was in Manchester on the final day of a state visit to the UK.

This week he has met the Queen at Buckingham Palace, downed a pint, eaten fish and chips at pub and had a tour of Manchester which took in the the Etihad Stadium.

As well as the selfie, the President also met Manchester City head coach, Patrick Vieira.

There was also a visit to the National Football Museum which saw former Manchester City player and Chinese footballer Sun Jihai being inducted into the hall of fame - the first Chinese national to receive the honour.

City Chairman Kahldoon Al Mubarak also showed Mr Xi round Manchester Town Hall, where hundreds of British-based Chinese greeted the president with flags, chanting "We love you President Xi."

Nearby, protestors were seen holding banners demanding humans rights justice for people in China.

According to the international group Human Rights Watch, there is routine use of torture in Chinese jails.

Other concerns are that the Chinese media is heavily restricted by the government and workers don't have enough rights.

The Chancellor George Osborne hailed the visit, saying "Let's stick together and make a golden decade for both our countries."
