A new US congressman has grounded his 17-year-old son after he pulled a dance move resembling a sneeze during a photo shoot after the House of Representatives swearing-in ceremony .

During the photo shoot, Cal Marshall held the Bible with his father, new Kansas congressman Roger Marshall, and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

As the photographer prepared to take photos, the son raised one arm in the move known as dabbing, hiding his face as if he was about to sneeze.

Mr Ryan asked if he was okay. As the teenager began laughing, Mr Marshall said: "He's sneezing."

Mr Marshall later tweeted: "He's grounded."
