A Kim Jong-un impersonator has been ejected from the Winter Olympics.
The impressionist, who told security guards his name was Howard, was thrown out of the united Korea v Japan women’s ice hockey match.
He drew the attention of security by dancing in front of North Korean cheerleaders.
Smiling and waving, Howard waved a flag and danced before being ushered to his seat by a group of North Korean men.
Later, he was escorted out of the ice hockey arena at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The impressionist is reportedly an Australian living in Hong Kong.

Last week a Kim Jong-un impersonator was photographed shaking hands with a Donald Trump lookalike at the opening ceremony.
On that occasion, the two impersonators were escorted out of the arena.
Meanwhile, the real Kim Jong-un has expressed satisfaction with the North Korean delegation’s visit to the South for the Games.
The North’s state-owned Korean Central News Agency reported the country’s leader was impressed with Seoul’s welcome and treatment of the high-level delegation.
He expressed gratitude to the South for “making their possible and sincere efforts” for their guests from the North.
North Korea sent its nominal head of state and Kim’s sister Kim Yo-jong, who extended an invitation to South Korean president Moon Jae-in to visit Pyongyang for a summit in the near future.
Mr Moon did not immediately accept the North Korean offer.
