We know that even at face value, there's a quite a lot that's different about British prime minister David Cameron and US president Barack Obama.

But we've never seen the difference in public opinion towards the two leaders captured quite so perfectly before.

An image has been circulating since midnight which puts two festive messages from the pair side by side.
