Barack Obama jokes about David Beckham's underwear ads
Barack Obama may be the US president, but that doesn't stop him from also being a part-time comedian.

Welcoming the LA Galaxy football team to the White House he went on to tease the club's captain David Beckham, delivering a series of jokes with perfect comic timing.

He paid tribute to the talented team line up and then went on to joke about a "young up and comer on the team - a guy named David Beckham".

After quips about his age Obama went on to say: "He is tough. In fact, it's a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear. David Beckham is that man."

The rest of the team, including former Tottenham star Robbie Keane, were in hysterics at the president's quips and later presented him with a Galaxy football and his very own jersey.

LA Galaxy were welcomed to the White House to be congratulated by the president on their third Major League Soccer Cup victory.
