Iceland’s Sportacus Gives Apple to Michelle Obama

Sportacus, the protagonist of the acclaimed Icelandic children’s series LazyTown who is portrayed by its creator Magnús Scheving, gave an apple to US First Lady Michelle Obama in Washington DC on Friday and played soccer with her.

The First Lady has launched a campaign to encourage American children to exercise more and LazyTown is participating in the campaign, mbl.is reports.

On Friday Sportacus conducted warm-up exercises for children in the Bruce Monroe elementary school in Washington DC and afterwards treated them to “sports candy,” fruit, vegetables and water.

Obama attended the event and accepted an apple from Sportacus at the occasion.
