Bono in France with Paul
The original photo was postd on U2achtung. We are not sure who the fan was. However you can clearly see the pain in Bono, Paul as the driver. The photo was taken next to a hotel where Bono may have been attending a summit - Ten days after back surgery. He did not get out of the car to take the photo. -
