A toddler dressed as Pope Francis in his pope mobile has been awarded top prize at the White House fancy dress party by President Barack Obama.

The American leader smiled as he caught sight of the boy, who was the son of a military officer, whilst giving out treats.

Obama, joined by his wife Michelle, turned the media and shouted "top prize".

The first lady said to the toddler: "You were just here!", in a reference to Pope Francis' recent visit to the states.

Happy Halloween!
