Apparantly, not long David Cameron, but US First Lady Michelle Obama, also tried her hand at ping pong as she visited a school in Beijing on her six-day tour of China.

The US First Lady went to Beijing Normal School, which prepares students for overseas universities, with her Chinese counterpart Peng Liyuan.

During their travels, Mrs Obama, who is with her mother, Marian Robinson, 76, and two daughters, Sasha, 12, and Malia, 15, will visit the Great Wall of China, Terracotta Warriors and a panda reserve. Mrs Obama is due to make a speech tomorrow at the prestigious Peking University.

The two First Ladies were expected to meet last June when their husbands held a summit in California but Mrs Obama stayed behind in Washington.
