US President Barack Obama planted a wet one on First Lady Michelle Obama during an exhibition basketball game.

A loud cheer and chants of "four more years!" from spectators at a basketball game got the Obamas to share a couple of public kisses.

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, found themselves in a spot last night where only few lovebirds have landed: the "Kiss Cam" at the Verizon Center's overhead scoreboard here.

The American first couple appeared on the jumbo screen while sitting on the sidelines of the mens' USA National Team vs Brazil basketball game, CNN reported today.

The crowd did a bit of booing when Michelle playfully rebuffed Obama's initial advances when they were featured on the "Kiss Cam". But fans didn't leave entirely disappointed. Not long after the couple shied away from some affectionate public display, reporters were brought back into the arena to watch as Obama and his wife re-appeared on the "Kiss Cam", this time with the president going in for a full smooch.
