Man divorces wife after awkward Google Earth encounter

Man and woman in Barranco

A FURIOUS husband is divorcing his cheating wife after spotting something suspicious on Google Maps.

The man was apparently checking the best way to reach a popular bridge in the Peruvian capital city of Lima when he spotted a familiar figure on the app's street view.

The man was planning a route ahead of a drive when he spotted an image of his wife sat on a bench stroking the hair of another man with his head in her lap.

According to local media reports, the man divorced his wife after confronting her with proof of her infidelity. Poor guy was probably lost and looking up where to go, and then he found out he'd lost his wife to another man.

Though the woman's face was blurred out, as is the norm with Google Street View, he immediately recognised her as his wife, based on her clothes and appearance.

To make matters worse (or just more poetic) the bridge in question is actually named the Puente de los Suspiros, or the "Bridge of Sighs" in English, reported MSN.

One social media user, San Pateste, said: "What a small world it is".

The woman in the case was snapped in 2013, however, it was while she was still married to her former husband.

The photograph is one of a long line of unintentionally freaky images taken for Google Maps and Google Street View.

This has inevitably resulted in some amusing and freakish moments captured on camera, including a couple having sex by a vehicle at unknown location, an armed robbery in South Africa and half-a-dozen people in pigeon masks in Japan.
