Barack Obama's love for basketball is undisputed and the guy can definitely play the game.
The 44th president of the United States showed that he still had it during a campaign trail for president aspirant Joe Biden in Michigan, US, on Saturday, October 31.
While walking through the gym at Old Flint Northwestern High School, Obama showed off incredible moves as he nailed a left-hand three-pointer on the basketball court.
A video shared on his Twitter account captured the moment the former POTUS received a pass, dribbled the ball once and then jumped for a three-pointer shot that went through the next amid cheers from Joe Biden and other onlookers.
Obama then walked off the court shouting:
"That's what I do, that's what I do."
He removed his "VOTE" labelled mask to show off a huge smile as his assistant handed him his coffee as the team walked out of the gymnasium.The father of two captioned the video: "Shoot your shot."
Biden was so impressed and followed the former president shouting, "Whoa, all net!" praising his skills.
More on the US elections, Briefly.co.za recently reported how Obama condemned President Donald Trump for claiming the media was giving the Covid-19 pandemic more airtime than it deserves.
Obama, who spoke on Tuesday, October 27, in Orlando, defended the media from Trump's criticisms, stating the disease had led to unexampled suffering to the world, and as such, needed to be a topic of discourse.
"And what is his closing comment, that everywhere is COVID-19, COVID-19. He is complaining. He is jealous of COVID-19 media coverage. If he had been focussed on COVID-19 from the beginning, we couldn't have been reaching new record highs this week. We have a president who lies several times a day. This is not normal behaviour," said Obama.
As separately reported by Briefly.co.za, Obama was in Orlando where he campaigned for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden when he made the remarks.
