President Barack Obama took a break from the seriousness of the NATO summits on Sunday to toss around the pigskin on Soldier Field. Obama and other NATO leaders held a working dinner there. According to NBC, it's not known if any of the other world leaders joined him, but he did tease the others about taking the field for a game.

Bonus: Check out his right hand. It looks like he's holding a little man.
