Obama had welcomed the LA Galaxy to the White House yesterday to congratulate the team on its 2011 Major League Soccer Cup Championship win.
During the meeting Obama also took a swipe at Beckham's age as he turned to the 37-year-old and said: "I have to say I gave David Beckham a hard time, and told him half the team could be his kids."
But Obama conceded that the footballer was "holding up better than me."
Obama further said that Beckham was "a rare man that can do all that (win the championship) and have his own line of underwear".
Beckham grinned with embarrassment as his younger team mates burst into laughter around him.
The team, which has three of soccer's biggest stars on its roster-- David Beckham, Landon Donovan, and Robbie Keane--won a tough championship match after going undefeated at home all season long.
"So everyone who's a part of this club -- the staff, the players, the fans back in LA -- together you pulled off one of the toughest feats in team sports: You lived up to the hype. You combined star power, hard work; it paid off," President Obama was quoted as saying by the White House.
