Ryan Tubridy has never made any secret of the fact he's a history buff but nobody ever expected him to travel back in time to interview some of the world's most influential figures. 

At first glance though, this pic the Late Late Show host posted on Instagram might suggest otherwise. The black and white photo features Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King engaging in a interview with a young journalist who has a more than striking resemblance to our very own Tubs. 

Ryan captioned the image with the words 'More proof that I was born in the wrong era...My friend was watching a Bobby Kennedy interview and saw me interviewing Martin Luther King...'

Tubridy's followers agreed that the likeness was fairly uncanny with comments ranging from 'Wow! Same hairstyle now as back then!' to 'Hilarious...the split of you, side profile. Everyone has their doppelganger, they say!'

One Insta user said that the snapshot is from new Netflix original documentary Bobby Kennedy For President so we'll all have to tune in to take a look later. Do you think the guy in the photo could pass for a Tubs twin or have you spotted any other RTÉ doppelgänger on your internet travels? Let us know in the comments.
