Teenager notices footballer's tattoo looks exactly like him, immediately goes viral

Is that… me?

LAST NIGHT, 16-year-old Dan Dawson noticed something.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Ryan Mason has a tattoo that looks very, very like him as a twelve-year-old.

Seriously, look at the similarity.

After noticing the uncanny similarity, Dawson tweeted the photo to his followers and it instantly went viral. The image has now been retweeted 22,263 times.

Not bad for a 16-year-old from Northampshire.

Dawson told Buzzfeed News that he was shocked by all the hoopla.

I thought it was a funny coincidence but I didn’t realise other people would find it that funny.

He has since said that he feels a little bad for pointing it out.

Ryan Mason has yet to comment on the coincidence.
