Cape Town - This photo of an elderly Russian woman has caused quite a stir on social media, with netizens saying she looks just like Donald Trump.

The uncanny Trump lookalike was snapped on a bus just hours before the 72-year-old U.S. president was set to meet his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin (65), in Helsinki, Finland.

The picture shows an unidentified woman wearing a white sunhat sitting in the window seat of the bus and gazing out the window.

The photo was taken in the city of Rostov-on-Don in Russia’s southwestern Rostov Oblast region.

Many social media users shared the picture, saying the granny absolutely nailed Trump’s characteristic self-important expression.

The authenticity of the picture has not yet been independently verified but the Russian doppelganger has been causing a stir on social media, with hundreds of users commenting on the likeness.

“She really looks like him!” a woman named Natalia Skoeva wrote.

“I’ve been re-watching this photo all day long. Thank you for it, dear author, it made my day,” another commented.

The photo was posted with the caption: “That moment when the US president is hiding from the FSB [Russian security service].”

This new lookalike comes a few months after a female Spanish farmer was also dubbed Trump’s twin on social media.

The Galician woman, Dolores Leis Antelo, told interviewers it was because of her hair colour.
