Mugabe, 95, was snapped slumped in a wheelchair wearing a black and white tracksuit and trainers by the sportswear giant.

His first born son Robert Jnr posted an image on Instagram as he lives out his twilight years in Singapore.

Zimbabwe’s ruthless ruler was toppled in 2017 when the military successfully staged a coup – ending 37 years of dictatorship by Mugabe.

The former leader was pictured sporting a grey beard, glasses, and Adidas trainers, poppers, a track jacket and a matching baseball cap.

“Hot boys up 20 in the fourth quarter,” Robert Jnr. wrote.

Mugabe was seen dressed in the same kind of tracksuit in an image previously released by his son.

Robert Jnr. is also rocking the Adidas gear, wearing a t-shirt form the brand as he poses by his dear old dad.

The 27-year-old basketball player keeps as close to his dad as he can, reports African media.

It was reported said he will act as the “historian” over Mugabe’s life when the dictator dies.

One relative said: “Of all Mugabe’s children, he’s the one who has spent the most time with his father.

“He has been a rock to the former president.

“When Mugabe is no longer with us, and in the absence of his written memoirs, Robert Junior is the guy historians will want to talk to.”

Mugabe was replaced by his former bodyguard Emmerson Mnangagwa – nicknamed The Crocodile – after the coup.

Last November, Mnangagwa said that his predecessor was undergoing treatment in Singapore.

He said: “[Mugabe] is now old. Of course, he now is unable to walk but whatever he asks for we will provide,” Mnangagwa said at the time.

“We are looking after him. He is the founding father of the nation of Zimbabwe.

“He is our founding father of free Zimbabwe.”

Mugabe was the first and only ruler of Zimbabwe unit the coup after Britain gave up the colony of Rhodesia.

He was elected in the 1980 election – leading the ZANU-PF party to victory – but quickly became a dictator.

Securing his ongoing “legitimacy” in violent and corrupt elections, he oversaw the collapse of the economy of Zimbabwe.
