This is awkward.
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has taken a selfie with the king of cool, Prime Minister David Cameron, and his Chinese counterpart, President Xi Jinping.
President Xi is in the UK as part of a state visit to the UK and took a tour around the Etihad campus as part of his trip.
"Thank you for the selfie, President Xi" 感谢能与您自拍，习主席！" wrote Aguero on City's official Twitter feed.
What's worse is that the President is supposed to be an avid Manchester United fan - the derby, of course, takes place this weekend.
Who is Mr Cameron supporting this weekend?
We're not sure. He can't even remember if he's an Aston Villa or West Ham fan.
Manchester derby combined XI
Manchester derby combined XI
1/11 David De Gea
The Spaniard edges it just past Joe Hart, who has nevertheless been in impressive form this season. Maybe next year for Joe, if Real Madrid come calling again…
2/11 Bacary Sagna
The French full-back’s mini-renaissance sees him get the nod ahead of both the off-colour Pablo Zabaleta and the talented-but-green Matteo Darmian.
3/11 Vincent Kompany
Once unanimously rated as the league’s outstanding centre-back, Kompany has endured a tough couple of years. This time around, he seems to cut basic errors out of his game and come back to his best.
4/11 Chris Smalling
When sent off in the derby at the Etihad last season and called ‘stupid’ by Louis van Gaal, his days at Old Trafford seemed numbered. Now, Chris ‘Mike’ Smalling is one of the club’s key players and its most reliable defender.
5/11 Aleksander Kolarov
This would go to Luke Shaw if the youngster had not suffered his horrific double leg fracture last month. Without a ready-made replacement in Van Gaal’s squad, the sometimes-shaky Kolarov takes our left-back berth.
6/11 Morgan Schneiderlin
The most impressive of United’s midfielders so far this term bar Ander Herera, who tends to operate higher up the field. That's not saying much, in truth, but the former Southampton enforcer should become a key player at Old Trafford in the years to come.
7/11 Yaya Toure
A player defined by big moments. When he’s bad, he’s bad. When he’s good, he’s incredible and his selection is guaranteed.
8/11 Kevin De Bruyne
A sensation since signing from Wolfsburg towards the end of the transfer window and the club's player of the month for September. His goal against Sevilla on Wednesday night could not have come at a better moment.
9/11 David Silva
Out since picking up an ankle injury on duty with Spain, the diminutive playmaker could return this weekend. A truly remarkable talent when at his best.
10/11 Raheem Sterling
Sterling’s career at the Etihad is gradually building momentum. With each passing performance, he is silencing those doubters who thought he would not be ready for the move.
11/11 Anthony Martial
Notice how nobody’s mentioning his price tag anymore? That’s how good the French teenager’s start at Old Trafford has been. Sergio Aguero would take up this position were he fit, what with him being the best player in the league. Martial’s excellent form makes him an ample replacement.
We're also not so sure how this picture will go down back in Aguero's native Argentina, giving the history with Mr Cameron and a certain set of islands in the South Atlantic...
