Barack Obama may have promised 'change' in his first election campaign, but he apparently didn't feel the need to get out of his office clothes for a new fitness video with Vice-President Joe Biden.

The slightly cringe-inducing clip, posted on YouTube, shows the pair jogging through the White House and is the latest light-hearted response to First Lady Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move' challenge - a national campaign targeted at ending childhood obesity.

Bo and Sunny Obama - the presidential family's pet dogs - even get a cameo in the video, which ends with Mr Biden and Mr Obama pledging "same time next week".

Mrs Obama has not been adverse to getting involved herself, with recent clips showing her slam dunking with NBA stars and teaming up with Big Bird as part of her national health drive.
