We've seen Obama shoot free-throws, play baseball and profess his love for the Chicago Bears. Now we have the privilege of watching the president of the United states have a kick-about with a Japanese robot.

ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative MObility) is known as one of the world's most advanced humanoid robots, and it seems that even football isn't beneath it.

And President Obama, as part of his four-day trip to Asia, obliged in taking part in a demonstration of the robot's ambulatory skills.

Amazingly enough, the robot seems to recognize the ball, take a few steps back and execute a perfect pass to Obama, whose touch could have been better.

It may not be able to out skill Ronaldo quite yet, but who knows how far away we could be from a football-playing robot.

Check out this weird encounter between man and robot.
