The LA Galaxy has visited the White House after winning its third cup in Major League Soccer, the US professional football league.

President Barack Obama congratulated the team, including Robbie Keane, David Beckham and captain Landon Donovan - throwing in a few gags.

He said Irish striker Keane was his cousin and had joked about "young up-and-comer" Beckham's underwear range.
