    “If I can change, and you can change, everybody can change,” Rocky Balboa once said passionately. Well, Photoshop has made things much easier since the 1980s.

    US President Donald Trump has just posted a bizarre photo of his face superimposed onto Rocky’s body.

    ‘But why?’ would be the next question. Trump didn’t care to attach any context, but the post perhaps has something to do with a moment at a Florida rally on Wednesday where he debunked speculation that he had had a heart attack.

    Trump, who indeed had an unscheduled weekend check-in at a medical center this month, claimed in front of the crowd in Florida that doctors wanted to see his “gorgeous chest.”

    Apparently, he just found a way to do that without technically breaking the rules.

    At 243 pounds (110 kg), Trump has long raised questions about his health, which he himself described as “very good”. But merciless Twitter users were quick to remind him about his actual physique…

    ​...and generally question the relevance of the Balboa impersonation.
