Ghana's highest all-time goal scorer, Asamoah Gyan, was captured in an adorable video with President Nana Akufo-Addo, as the two exchanged football passes.
In a video sighted by Briefly.co.za on the official YouTube channel of UpFront TV, the skilful exchange between the two respected personalities in Ghana was greeted with deafening applause from all who had gathered.
The footage was taken on September 4 when the President of the Republic of Ghana, together with Asamoah Gyan and other members in the sporting fraternity, unveiled a new AstroTurf at the University of Professional Studies, Accra.
The facility was constructed at the cost of nearly four million Ghanaian Cedis from the university’s Internally Generated Funds.
According to Citisportsonline.com, the facility comes with a FIFA standard pitch, 5 000 seating capacity, floodlights, changing rooms and offices for the school’s sports directorate.
Akufo-Addo said the project formed part of the government’s efforts to improve sports infrastructure across the country.

According to a study by GamblingDeals and cited by The Sun, Ronaldo's £615k (R13 million) diamond ring which, he bought for Rodriguez in 2018, still remains the most expensive piece.
Ronaldo is thought to have asked Georgina to marry him in 2018 and fans could hear the sound of the wedding bells soon as the Juventus star confirmed last year he'll eventually marry his fiancee. He told Piers Morgan on ITV last year:
"She helped me so much. Of course, I’m in love with her. We’ll be [married] one day, for sure. It’s my mum’s dream as well."
Georgina and Ronaldo have two-year-old daughter Alana together and are raising his three other children - surrogate twins Eva and Mateo, 3, and 10-year-old Cristiano.
