Michelle Obama: See The Picture Everyone’s Talking About

See the moment Barack Obama found himself in Michelle's bad books. You won't believe these pictures...

Michelle Obama demonstrated the art of giving your partner the cold shoulder routine yesterday, as America’s most powerful couple led the touching tributes at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

All seemed well as the US president arrived in Johannesburg, South Afria with the First Lady on his arm, but Michelle’s unimpressed facial expressions told a different story inside Soweto’s FNB stadium.

Paying their tributes alongside other world leaders, Barack was pictured rubbing shoulder with Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt during the service.

In fact, the pair appeared to be a little infatuated with each other’s company as they nattered, and even joined David Cameron for a questionably timed selfie.

Needless to say, a disapproving Michelle didn’t join the trio for a cheeky snap, focusing her glare away from the grinning pals. Eventually.

Is this the most awkward couple picture you’ve ever seen? Share your comments below…
