It wasn't all solemnity at Nelson Mandela's memorial service.

President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron leaned in to pose for a selfie with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at a vast soccer stadium where Mandela was honored. Obama's wife, Michelle, sat unsmiling next to her husband, out of the picture, which was captured by a photographer at the event.

Other pictures taken during the memorial show Obama chatting with the Danish prime minister, and Mrs. Obama talking with her, as well.
