Is this the First Time a Sitting US President Has Watched a Champions League Final? [PHOTO]

During the G8 Summit this weekend at Camp David in Maryland, several leaders of the world took a break to watch the UEFA Champions League Final.

In an official photograph released by The White House, US President Barack Obama can be seen with his mouth wide open during the penalty kicks, presumably when Chelsea’s Didier Drogba scored the winner. Alongside President Obama is British Prime Minister David Cameron with arms raised in victory, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel stands in shock after Bayern Munich lost.

As far as we know, this is the first time that a sitting US President has watched a Champions League Final. And since the G8 Summit was held in Maryland, President Obama and the other leaders must have been watching FOX’s broadcast of the Chelsea-Bayern Munich match.
