Obama on basketball and Nato

President Obama has made no secret of the fact he is obsessed with basketball, and although he has much weighing on his mind, like the economic crisis, his beloved sport has not lost out.

This weekend is the NCAA tournament, a college basketball competition which is a huge fixture in the US sports calendar.

It also appears to be a huge fixture for the President who took time out of his busy schedule to share his predictions for the tournament with sports channel ESPN.
