A photo of Barack Obama confronted by a boy dressed as Spider-man outside the Oval Office has been released by the White House.

The light-hearted encounter between the US president and a staff member's child in a Halloween outfit was captured by Mr Obama's official photographer, Pete Souza.

The snap was posted on the president's Twitter and Facebook accounts yesterday.
