David Cameron risked no end of White Men Can't Jump jokes as he joined President Barack Obama on the basketball court for the first photo opportunity of the British Prime Minister's three-day tour to the United States.

Around three hours after the couple's arrival, Mr Obama and Mr Cameron took a helicopter back to Andrews Air Force Base, to board the president's private jet, Air Force One, and head to the basketball game.
