Just days after becoming Israel’s president-elect, Isaac Herzog has been spotted standing by the front door of his home on Google Street View.

Herzog, 60, was elected the 11th President of Israel with 87 Knesset members voting for him, the biggest majority a candidate has ever won, on 2nd June.

The Google Street View photo was taken in a luxury Tel Aviv neighbourhood, and the image apparently shows the president-elect, who will be inaugurated on 9th July, standing outside the front door of his home waiting to be let in.

Twitter user ‘Yoav Massy’ shared the image with the message: “Nice fact about the president-elect: If you search his house on Google from scratch, you can see him on Street View waiting for the door to be opened.”

Google Street View came to Israel in early 2013, and has since expanded considerably after several years of networking and mapping with special vehicles with cameras.

Herzog is the son of Chaim Herzog, Israel’s sixth president, and grandson of the first Ashkenazi chief rabbi after who he was named.

He was also leader of the Labor party, running as the party’s candidate for Prime Minister during the 2015 elections, and chairman of the Jewish Agency up until his presidential election.

Herzog will replace President Reuven Rivlin, 81.

The Israeli presidency is considered a largely ceremonial position with little real power, and the main role is meeting with leaders of each party following legislative elections to discuss nominations for prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu, 72, has been serving as Prime Minister since 2009.
