UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn took to Twitter on Thursday morning and posted a mysterious tweet saying that "personal images" from his past had been leaked to the press.
The 70-year old then said "Here's the truth" followed by a link which initially would indicate some kind of explanation.
In a cheeky reveal however, the link opens up to a Labour Party page lets people find their nearest polling station to vote in today's general election.

The post has since gone viral, receiving more than 28,000 likes, 9,000 retweet, and over 10,000 comments.
Thousands of people fell for the tweet, ominously thinking it may be a last ditch effort by the Conservatives to attack the Labour leader.

Some even made reference to Boris Johnson hiding in a fridge from reporters yesterday.
Corbyn's tweet comes as the UK heads to the poll for a snap general election where they will be voting on their next government.

Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the election to bolster support for his Brexit withdrawal agreement.
Mr Corbyn however has focused on domestic issues, attempting to direct the debate towards the NHS, the state of public transport, the UK's foreign interventions, and investment in a Green Industrial Revolution.
