Ricky reports on Obama's school visit

He may be one of the most powerful men in the world, but he still knows how to dish out burgers and sausages!

US President Barack Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron served guests at a barbecue at No 10 Downing Street.

President Obama and his wife Michelle are on their second day of a three-day state visit to the UK.

It wasn't all fun though as earlier the politicians had serious talks about the war in Afghanistan and the problems in Libya.

On Tuesday the president and the prime minister turned up at a school in south London - and played table tennis with two pupils!

It's only the third visit by a US president to the UK in the last 100 years.

The Obamas are on a week-long tour of Europe that started in Dublin on Monday and he's going to France next.
