Several photos circulating recently on social media show a man uncannily resembling LeBron James in a jeepney.


The images were taken and posted on Facebook by Grade 12 student Joshua Barraca, who spotted "the King's" clone while commuting in Las Piñas City.

"Nakasabay ko po siya kahapon kakauwi ko lang po galing school . . . napatingin po ako sa mukha then simula noon na-confuse na ako kasi kamukha niya idol ko na si Lebron James," Barraca told ABS-CBN News.

The James doppelganger turned out to be a Cameroonian basketball player named Yanscott Mboe.


Barraca said he later came across Mboe online and apologized for secretly taking photos of him.

"Ayun, OK na naman daw po," he said.
