Watch President Obama's tribute to Beckham

David Beckham has played football with US President Barack Obama on the famous White House lawn.

Ex-England captain Becks and his LA Galaxy team mates visited the US president's home in Washington DC on Tuesday night.

They were invited for a tour after winning the American Major League Soccer Cup earlier this year.

President Obama gave David a special mention, describing him in a joke as a "young up and comer"!

He then teased the superstar about his fashion career, saying "it's a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear."

The event was part of charity set up by Obama's wife Michelle called 'Let's Move', which aims to get more young people involved in sport.
