Former President Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle, have spent some time vacationing with Richard Branson since leaving the White House.
Obama has been enjoying life after the US presidency by trying out watersports on a luxury Caribbean island owned the British billionaire.
The Virgin Group founder put up a blog post with pictures and video of the ex-president kitesurfing off one of Branson’s private islands in the British Virgin Islands.
“Being the former president of America, there was lots of security around, but Barack was able to really relax and get into it,” the British billionaire wrote.
