Barack Obama injured in basketball game


Barack Obama has been left bloodied and bruised after a basketball game with family and friends.

A stray elbow left the US President needing a local anaesthetic and 12 stitches to his lip.

After being tended to by the White House Medical Unit, Obama was seen apparently holding a compress to his mouth.

Downstairs, his wife Michelle and duaghters Sasha and Malia took delivery of the White House Christmas tree.
