The White House has objected to the tweeting of a selfie snapped by a member of a leading baseball team which included President Obama in the photograph.

The White House said the President's image should not be used for commercial gain.

David Ortiz denied that he was paid by Samsung to take the picture, as Alpa Patel reports.
