Obama attempts a sultry Tango on trip to Argentina

U.S. President Barack Obama takes to the dance floor at a state dinner in Buenos Aires

U.S. President Barack Obama showed off his Latin dancing moves, taking to the dance floor with a celebrated Argentine tango dancer.

Dancers performed the national dance of Argentina at an official state dinner hosted for Obama in Buenos Aires by President Mauricio Macri at Latin America's biggest cultural centre. Obama was then invited to the floor by a tango dancer Mora Godoy who was decked out in a gold dress and shoes.

The president somewhat sheepishly grasped her hand before launching into a confident march across the floor followed by small twists and turns.

First Lady Michelle Obama was not left out of the act, as she was led through the steps by a male tango dancer.
