This week, the headlines have been dominated by Joe Biden, who was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.

While photos of Biden were widely shared, photos of another senator almost stole the limelight, as an image of Bernie Sanders in a folding chair became a global meme.

Off the back of the meme, Snapchat has launched a hilarious new filter that allows users to place Sanders and his folding chair around their homes, using augmented reality.

The photo became a worldwide meme after the Vermont politician was photographed in a fold-down chair, wearing a grey, oversized jacket and some knitted wool mittens at Biden's inauguration
