Forget President Obama’s selfie with other world leaders at the Nelson Mandela memorial service. And President Kenyatta’s selfie with a TV journalist. Scratch Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar selfie which is the most retweeted selfie of all time. British traveller Lee Thomspon has taken what is touted as the World’s Best Selfie.
Thomson took a series of selfies atop Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Christ the Redeemer 30-metre-tall-statue. The Brazilian tourism authorities don’t allow visitors to climb up the statue but the Flash Pack travel company owner was able to convince them otherwise. He took one selfie with the incredible Rio skyline below.
