David Beckham and his Los Angeles Galaxy teammates met U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday (14May12), where the soccer stars were applauded for their Major League Soccer Cup win.
Beckham, 37, led the Los Angeles team to victory over Houston Dynamo in November (11) and had to endure a few jokes about his age during a press conference with Obama.
The President quipped, "I gave David a hard time; I said that half his teammates could be his kids! We're getting old, David. In fact, you're holding up better than me."
Obama also took aim at the British sportsman's sideline as an underwear model, adding, "It's a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear."
During the visit to the White House, Beckham and his teammates presented the President with his own Galaxy shirt and then joined First Lady Michelle Obama at a soccer clinic with kids on the South Lawn.
