See Barack Obama's double

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Check out this lookalike to the new USA president Barack Obama.

Photogapher Ilhan Anas, 34, from Indonesia, is in the spotlight because of his striking resemblance and has even been in a TV ad for indigestion medicine!

He said: "I see my resemblance to Obama as a blessing. I used to look at the mirror and I had a negative perception of myself."

But he said he would not like to become an official body-double for Obama as he was worried about the possibility of getting shot.
