The UN General Assembly president has tweeted a picture of himself with a man posing as U2's Bono believing he was the real deal.

Vuk Jeremic was left red faced after posting the picture on his Twitter account, but he soon realised the mystery man, professional Bono lookalike Pavel Sfera, was not the real singer when users on his social networking account revealed his identity.
