Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has shown off his dedication to Star Wars by sporting themed socks on the unofficial holiday celebrating the films.

His feet displayed R2-D2 and C-3PO during a meeting with Ireland's prime minister.

May 4, as in "May The Fourth Be With You" has become a day to celebrate all things Star Wars.

Mr Trudeau made sure to show his spirit despite a high-profile meeting with Enda Kenny in Montreal on Thursday.

Photos show him wearing the mismatched Star Wars-themed footwear.

One sock shows off the golden C-3PO, while blue-and-white R2-D2 is on the other foot.

Mr Trudeau later tweeted a photo with the note: "These are the socks you're looking for".

The line is a play on one of Alec Guinness' lines in the original 1977 film.
