A picture of President Jacob Zuma riding a quad bike is making the rounds on Facebook.

On Saturday many Facebook users shared a picture of Zuma relaxing at his Nkandla home in KwaZulu-Natal. It is believed that the picture was taken at the weekend.

The photographer is unknown.

A source close to the family told News24 that the quad bike was a present the president received from his children for his 72nd birthday last year.
