Few UK politicians seem to look as smooth on the field as Obama

During David Cameron's trip to America, we saw the bromance flourish between him and Obama. They appeared to "seal the deal" by jetting off together to watch a basketball game.

Observers saw it as a clear sign of their closeness, but some noticed Cameron looked less than comfortable.

We also thought it would be good way to welcome in the new Huffington Post Sports section.

(For the video, you may want to skip to a minute in to see Ed Balls' physical prowess)
