Guests attending events at Madame Tussauds will now have the opportunity to get up close and personal with newly elected US President Barack Obama - his wax figure was revealed at the venue this morning.

Staff at the Baker Street event space have re-created the legendary Oval Office, allowing guests to experience what it's like to stand behind the iconic Resolute desk and pace the American Eagle-monikered carpet at The Whitehouse.

Mr Obama himself is dressed in a tailored suit, striking a relaxed pose and smiling with his arms casually folded.

To celebrate the Presidential inauguration day on 20 January, all United States citizens will be given free entry to the attraction on presentation of valid documentation.
