Former US President Obama Dressed as Santa to Surprise Hospital Patients With Xmas Gift

Former US president Barack Obama visited sick children on Wednesday to put smiles on their faces.

He was spotted wearing a Santa hat, carrying quite a heavy sack filled with gifts.

The 44th president of the United States delighted young patients at Children's National hospital in Washington with gifts such as jigsaw puzzles, remote-control cars, glitter nail polish among others. He also gave out hugs and broke his 'no selfie' rule to pose with fans.

"I just want to say thank you to all of you guys," the former president told staff, who greeted him with rapturous cheers, in a video he shared on his Twitter account.

"We've had the chance to talk to some of the wonderful kids and their families," he added.

"As the dad of two girls, I can only imagine in that situation to have nurses and staff and doctors and people who are caring for them, and looking after them... that's the most important thing there is."
