Yes, that really is a man in South Ossetia riding a tricycle through a war zone wearing a Tyrone GAA jersey.
No, the picture is not photoshopped. It was taken by an Associated Press photographer and was published on the Guardian website last Wednesday.
I can only assume that while the lad is somewhat unhappy about Russia invading his country and looting and destroying it, he might be just a little pleased to hear that his adopted Gaelic football county slaughtered the Dubs at Croker today.
Okay, maybe 'slaughtered' isn't quite the most appropriate word.
