US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka flashed a heart sign for Team USA when she watched the snowboarding at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics yesterday.

Ivanka, who paired a stylish red winter coat with a Team USA hat, arrived in Seoul yesterday to lead the US delegation at the closing ceremony.

She called it a "great honour", adding: "We are very, very excited to attend the... games to cheer for Team USA and to reaffirm our strong and enduring commitment with the people of the Republic of Korea."

Ms Trump was due to attend a dinner with South Korean president Moon Jae-in in Seoul yesterday evening.

She was then expected to head to Pyeongchang to be at the closing ceremony tomorrow.

Ms Trump's arrival marked the latest in a string of high profile appearances at the Winter Games.

The sporting events have been increasingly eclipsed by powerful political delegations and diplomatic manoeuvres behind the scenes.

Comparisons have been drawn between Ms Trump and Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who appeared to mesmerise the global media with her presence at the opening ceremony earlier this month, despite her not speaking a word in public.
