Obama Ribs Becks At White House Meeting
President teases British soccer superstar as he plays host to team...
Barack Obamahas welcomed a few VIPs to the White House in his time as President of the United States of America, but he has rarely looked as pleased as he did when posing with LA Galaxy soccer captain David Beckhamyesterday.
That may of course have been something to do with the fact that Becks and his team mates had brought the Prez a gift of a personalised LA Galaxy shirt with his name and the number one on the back.
The team were invited to the White House after winning the country's Major League Soccer series for the third time.
According to the Press Association, Obama joked that half of Becks' team mates "could be his kids", and added: "We're getting old, David," although he did concede that the 37-year-old Brit was "holding up better than me".
The 50-year-old Stateside leader also quipped that it is a "rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear".
