In fact it was two spitting-image lookalikes -- not the actual bickering enemies -- who were turning heads, shaking hands and taking selfies.

And as protesters raged against the presence in Pyeongchang of North Korean athletes and dignitaries, including Kim's sister Kim Yo Jong, the two fake leaders were given a warm reception by stunned onlookers.

"When we arrived at the station we were treated like rock stars," Kim lookalike Howard, dressed in all black, told AFP.

"Some people were fooled but most people can see the lighter side."

Behind the jokes, however, was a serious message.

"This is a peace envoy," insisted the ersatz Kim, flanked by Trump substitute Dennis Alan, wearing a red USA cap.

"We're going to promote peace and show people this is what peace can look like."

The fake Kim -- an Australian based in Hong Kong -- expressed hope that "the real Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un could also get on and not start World War Three".

Before entering the stadium, where the real US Vice-President Mike Pence and Kim's sister were in attendance, he added: "Hopefully we can meet Mike Pence and the sister of Kim Jong Un.

"My only worry is that somebody with no sense of humour won't let us in."

Once inside, the two impersonators caused a stir when they passed the press box, causing journalists to leave their seats and chase after them.

The lifelike fake Trump sported the former business mogul's trademark over-long red tie.

"It happens quite frequently that people are fooled by the way I look," he said.

"But I do not use my likeness to make any kind of political statement."

Jerry Seinfeld teases Seinfeld revival is 'possible' .
For anyone hoping Seinfeld will go the way of Roseanne, Will & Grace, and Murphy Brown with its own revival, Jerry Seinfeld has two words that are gonna make you freak. “It’s possible,” he told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show. Just like that, the comedian sent the audience into fits of applause, but let’s get real. When talking aboutSeinfeld‘s future potential last year with ET, Seinfeld remarked, “Why? Maybe it’s nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well.” Perhaps Seinfeld changed his tune. Perhaps there is a possibility of the hit sitcom (currently available on Hulu) becoming the latest to join the TV revival bandwagon. (Stranger things have happened.) Just don’t hold your breath. Seinfeld is currently working on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and he went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to reveal the titular talk show host on his series. “On my show, I like to tell people what to do,” he explained of his comic guests. “They tell me what’s going on in their life, and I go, ‘Well, I’ll tell you what I think you should do.’ And I said to you, ‘Would you like my advice about [wife] Portia [de Rossi] getting another horse?’ … And Ellen did not want my advice, but she was just trying to be nice, so she went, ‘Eh, okay,’ the way only she can do it.
