A fish that some people claim bears the face of Jesus has fans lining up for selfies.

Helen Barlow was visiting Notcutts garden centre, in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, when she noticed koi carp ‘Carl’ and snapped some photos to send to her grandson. But when she got home she saw something unusual.

After posting the picture online, Helen was inundated with people ‘recognising’ the fish’s face. Many said the markings resemble Jesus, while others think the face is the image of Donald Trump or Rafael Benitez, the Spanish football coach who is the manager of Premier League club Newcastle United, reported the Mirror.
