Other people also learned of the Pak Bean vs real Mr Bean issue following President Mnangagwa’s tweet.
The Pak “Mr Bean” refers to a Pakistani national, Asif Muhammed, a doppelganger of iconic British actor Rowan Atkinson. Atkinson played the role of Mr Bean in the wildly popular 1990’s British Sitcom of the same name.
Some Zimbabwean fans claimed that during a 2016 visit, Asif Muhammed passed himself off as the real Mr Bean to gullible local fans.
One Zimbabwean fan went viral ahead of the match when he claimed that Zimbabwe would take revenge on Pakistan for sending a fake Mr Bean to the country.

“We may not have the real Mr Bean, but we have a real cricketing spirit .. and we Pakistanis have a funny habit of bouncing back:) Mr President: Congratulations. Your team played really well today.”
