The President of the United States has revealed how he first wooed the First Lady.

Barack and Michelle Obama have been talking about their first date in 1989.

"I took her to the art museum at the art institute - I was trying to impress her, show her that I was a real culturally sensitive guy," said Barack. "And it worked!"

"It worked," Michelle agreed.

"So I'm giving tips to the young men out there," joked the President.

The rendezvous began with lunch by a fountain in the Chicago art institute courtyard and took in a film - Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing.

"The fountain - nice touch," said Michelle to a smug-looking Barack.

"Take tips, gentlemen," he says.

The couple married in 1992 and have two children together.
