A robotic version of US President Barack Obama debuted at an event on Friday at the Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The animated, speaking figure of Obama and some 1,000 newly-naturalised citizens attended the opening of a newly revamped Hall of Presidents at the theme park, the Miami Herald reported on its webside.

Obama himself recorded the brief comments which was spoken by his robotic version at the event.

Disney staffers had worked with the White House to ensure that his wardrobe, hair and mannerisms were as accurate as possible.

The Hall of Presidents is one of the original exhibits at the park, which opened in 1971.
