He may be an imposing figure, but Jason Momoa unwittingly supplied the Internet with some light relief when he was snapped stepping out with two bodyguards recently.

The 6-foot-4 actor, famous for playing warlord Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, towers over the two men with him in the image, leading Twitter user @IcecreamGenius to wonder who was actually playing the role of protector.

Other Twitter users also saw the funny side of the image and added their own tweets commenting on the humorous pic.
