Social media is up in arms after a picture of President Cyril Ramaphosa "sleeping" at the Russia-Africa summit went viral.

The picture is a screen grab from a live SABC broadcast. It shows Ramaphosa, eyes closed, among other world leaders. 

The summit in Sochi, Russia, themed “Uncovering the Potential for Co-operation”, ended on Thursday. 

Some social media users were amused by the picture, but others were less than pleased.
