Video: Obama's basketball blunder

It was 15th time lucky for US President Barack Obama as he tried to show off his basketball skills in front of a crowd at the White House.

He missed his first 14 shots but managed to finally throw the ball through the hoop on his 15th try.

He was joined by children and basketball players as part of the White House's annual Easter celebrations, who gave him a loud round of applause.

Check out the video above to see him playing basketball.
