President Donald Trump is regularly seen on the golf course - but is he considering trying his hand at a new sport?
Trump is on a four-day state visit to Japan and he joined an estimated 11,500 fans at Ryogoju Kokugiak Stadium to watch one of the country's most treasured cultural events.
At the end, Trump stepped into the ring and presented the eagle-topped "President's Cup" to champion wrestler Asanoyama.
Following the event, Trump said he always wanted to see sumo wrestling and that it was an "incredible evening".
He added: "That was something to see, these great athletes."
