    Selfie competiton winner has used a picture from the internet. 8th Jun 17 at 12:41 PM
    Just noticed the winner for this - https://www.facebook.com/TheNottingham/posts/1212400105554922 - it's a selfie competition. The definition of selfie is:

    "selfie
    !!!712;s!!!603;lfi/
    nouninformal
    noun: selfie; plural noun: selfies; noun: selfy

    a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media."
    However the winner has clearly used a picture from the internet - http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/match-reports/nottingham-forest-2-2-derby-10051534, this picture -

    The winner is the man with black anorak top right - his left hand is out of shot because he is holding a massive selfie stick :-)
