Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has posted an image of a golfer resembling former U.S. President Donald Trump in the shadow of a drone.
Khamenei vowed revenge for the death of top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in a US airstrike on January 3 last year in Iraq, which was ordered by Trump.
The Twitter account of Iran's Supreme Leader posted the image on Friday, captioned with remarks made by Khamenei in December in which he said 'Revenge is certain'.
At the time, his comments renewed a vow of vengeance ahead of the first anniversary of the killing of Iran's top military commander.

'Those who ordered the murder of General Soleimani as well as those who carried this out should be punished,' Khamenei tweeted on December 16.
Without naming Trump, he said: 'This revenge will certainly happen at the right time.'
Trump - who is known for his love of golf - has been replaced by newly-elected President Joe Biden, who was inaugurated in a ceremony on Wednesday in Washington DC.
It is believed the new president will look to engage more on the world stage - in contrast with Trump's more isolationist approach - with hopes he will return to the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran.

Earlier this month, Twitter removed a tweet by Khamenei in which he said U.S. and British-made vaccines were unreliable and may be intended to 'contaminate other nations'. The platform said the tweet violated its rules against misinformation.
There was no apparent immediate action by Twitter over the Persian-language tweet on Friday by Khamenei, Iran's highest authority.
