Kim Jong-un went walkabout in Singapore hours before his historic summit with Donald Trump, and even posed for what is thought to be his first "selfie".
The North Korean dictator smiled as Vivian Balakrishnan, the city-state’s foreign minister, took a photograph of them together on his mobile phone, which he then posted on Facebook and Twitter.
Ong Ye Kung, Singapore’s education minister, also squeezed into the historic selfie, his shoulder touching Kim’s.
It was captioned "#jalanjalan #guesswhere?" – the Malay phrade "jalan-jalan" means "taking a walk".

The walkabout and selfie were extraordinary moments for a secretive leader who has rarely left his hermit kingdom since taking power.
But Kim appeared completely at ease, looking like a jovial tourist as Mr Balakrishnan showed him around Singapore.

The North Korean leader’s sister Kim Yo Jong, credited with helping change his image, accompanied him on the tour, along with a phalanx of bodyguards and media.
Kim, used to being treated as a demi-god in his own country, appeared remarkably relaxed as TV cameras and photographer’s flashbulbs were pointed in his face.
His late night trip began at 9pm local time as Kim’s motorcade left his base at the St. Regis Hotel for the Marina Bay Sands, a 55-floor skyscraper.
He was taken to the top floor where there are stunning views over the city. It also features the Ce La Vi bar, and an infinity pool.

It was not clear whether Kim was aware the hotel is owned by Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas billionaire who was a major donor to Mr Trump’s election campaign.
After the Marina Bay Sands, Kim was spotted at 10.20pm walking over a bridge at the esplanade about two-thirds of a mile away. His tour also took in Gardens by the Bay which has the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
