'Obama bought 20 pizzas'

The owner of a pizza shop in Florida surprised US President Barack Obama when he lifted him off the ground after giving him a huge hug during a campaign tour.

Mr Obama told Scott Van Duzer, a tall muscular man, that he was the biggest pizza shop owner he had ever seen.

The pizza shop owner voted for Mr Obama four years ago and said he intended to do the same this year, despite being a registered Republican.

Mr Van Duzer told BBC news that the president had ordered 20 pizzas and paid with cash. He said it was a great meeting and that Mr Obama stayed for 20 minutes.
