Mayora Tavares is at the centre of the 'O-bum-a-gate' affair
He may be the world’s most powerful man but even Barack Obama is not immune to the charms of a nice bottom!
At the G8 summit in Italy, he was snapped apparently checking out the perfect curves of a young lady.
And French President Nicolas Sarkozy (54) was looking on in amusement
So who was the lady in red who caught the eye of Obama - or should that be O-BUM-a?
Mayora Tavares is at the centre of the 'O-bum-a-gate' affair - the 'did he or didn't he' look question that is being hotly debated around the world.
Her name is Mayora Tavares, she is 16 and she comes from Brazil.
Mayora was at the G8 summit in Italy as part of the J8 – a group of 53 people aged between 14 and 17 who have been meeting in Rome since the start of the week. The group were there to discuss how the lives of young people around the world can be improved.
After they presented their results and ideas on Thursday to their senior counterparts, the delegates had a group photo with them when Obama (47) was snapped.
But now Mayora has found herself at the centre of 'O-bum-a-gate', the 'did he or didn't he' question that is causing controversy around the world.
Video evidence has thrown doubt on the fact that Barack Obama was checking her out. But it now doesn't look good for President Sarkozy...

"what kind of jeans does Obama wear?"
U.S. president Barack Obama said "he hates to shop" after his baggy pants were mocked as "mom jeans."
During an interview on NBC's "Today Show" Tuesday, he answered the fashion critics and defended himself.
Obama was in the poor-looking jeans when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star Game in St. Louis last week.
In the interview, Obama acknowledged that he "looked a little frumpy," but added he hates to shop and that "those jeans are comfortable."
"For people who want a president to look great in tight jeans, I'm sorry," he said.
The interview has however sparked renewed interest in the infamous jeans.
Searches surged on "Obama's mom jeans" and "Obama wears mom jeans," and even a few queries on "what kind of jeans does Obama wear?" could be seen.
It is said that some brave souls are looking to copy the president's devil-may-care look.
