  • Dictator was heading to lunch after a long morning of talks with President Moon
  • Guards deftly altered their formation to avoid being hit as the car turned a bend
  • Twitter users mocked set-up, with one writing: ‘A run would do Kim some good’

Kim Jong-un was seen speeding off in a black Mercedes limo surrounded by 12 jogging security guards after leaving the first stage of Friday’s peace summit to have lunch. 

TV footage showed the bodyguards in a ring-shaped formation around the vehicle as it rolled back to the northern side of the Panmunjom truce village where Kim and other North Korean officials were due to have a bite to eat.

The portly tyrant clearly wasn’t keen on the short walk after a long morning of talks with President Moon, during which the two leaders discussed prospects for peace after more than six decades of hostility.

Kim was seen stepping into the limo outside the Peace House, where his talks with Moon had taken place. 

As the vehicle began to pull off the bodyguards immediately leapt into action, peeling off one by one to ensure it was covered on all sides. 

The guards deftly altered their formation to avoid being hit as the car turned a slight bend before crossing a patch of dead grass over to its destination. 

Twitter users poked fun at the bizarre video after it emerged online.

Jonathan Cheng tweeted: ‘The morning session is over, and Kim Jong Un, riding in the Mercedes limo, gets the human motorcade treatment, as his 12 bodyguards get in some nice midday cardio.’  

Jeremy Holleb wrote: ‏’That was a long run by the bodyguards. Why isn’t Kim running next to his own limo? It would do him some good.’ 

And ‘A New Day’ jested: ‘Can somebody please tell Kim it is ok to bring more than one car next time.
