The much-derided triple-whammy selfie of Barack Obama, David Cameron, and Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial may be saved from the electronic dustbin.

According to an insider, Mr Cameron has asked Ms Thorning-Schmidt to auction the image off for charity.

‘Helle wanted to delete it, but Cameron urged her not to. He pointed out that it could raise a lot of money,’ a source told the Sunday Times.

Downing Street reportedly would not confirm whether or when the conversation took place but Ms Thorning-Schmidt had previously defended the picture as ‘a bit of fun’.

‘There were lots of pictures taken that day, and I just thought it was a bit fun. Maybe it also shows that when we meet heads of state and government, we too are just people who have fun.
