Barack Obama spending final Christmas as president in Hawaii

President Barack Obama celebrated Christmas with a quiet morning at his holiday home in Hawaii.

The president, first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia are on the island of Oahu.

Mr Obama was expected to stay at the rental home in Kailua for much of the day, opening presents with his family and taking part in other family traditions.

Traditionally, Mr Obama spends part of the day at a nearby military base visiting with US troops as they have Christmas dinner.

The Obamas are midway through their annual two-week vacation in Mr Obama's home state. This is the last time Obama will celebrate Christmas in Hawaii - at least as president.

The White House said Vice President Joe Biden was spending the Christmas holiday at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
