Ashley Cole is mocked by Roma captain Francesco Totti during official team photo
Cole caused an internet storm after awkward photo with new team-mates
Roma club captain Francesco Totti has made a brilliant mockery of his new team-mate Ashley Cole.
The former England and Chelsea defender caused a storm earlier this week when he was pictured lurking awkwardly during a team photo posted by his new club.
Images of Ashley Cole lurking went viral, with the 33-year-old even joining in on the fun by responding to some of the best ones, including a picture of him looking through the window at his ex-wife Cheryl with her new husband.
But Totti has further added to Cole's embarrassment, photo (above) via @davcoppo, by recreating the pose during a session for the official team photo.
Cole is seen standing in the front row (third from left) as the veteran Totti takes a step away from the group.

When the picture originally emerged, social networks and photoshoppers quickly moved into gear to embarrass Cole.

It is not yet known whether Cole knows about the pose.
