Picture of Jay Z sitting alongside Barry Chuckle at Wembley confounds the internet

Sorry everyone, the greatest picture to be taken in 2017 has been revealed to be a fake. 

On a night of high-octane, brutal heavyweight boxing, an image showing a Chuckle Brother sitting next to global hip-hop icon Jay Z became one of the most talked about moments at Wembley.

Anthony Joshua came off the canvas to beat Wladimir Klitschko in a titanic bout that almost had as many people tweeting as this unlikely couple. 

Despite the two men having the most contrasting lifestyles imaginable, many people believed the image, which was shared over a thousand times on Twitter, must be genuine.

Unfortunately some research using Google Images has confirmed that Barry Chuckle's face has been photoshopped onto an image of American middleweight boxer, Andre Ward.

The original image is from a 2015 Throne Boxing Fight Night in New York, promoted by the Roc Nation Sports Boxing Division, a company owned by Jay Z.
