16 photos comparing Enda Kenny's retirement to Barack Obama's

A couple of smooth players.

2017 WAS THE year that saw one of the world’s greatest statesmen hang up his political hat: former US President Barack Obama.

Fine Gael’s Enda Kenny also retired.

It’s been a contrasting few months out of office for the pair of them, to say the least.

1. Here’s Obama kitesurfing less than a month after leaving office

Backward caps are mandatory for retired leaders.
