Barack and Michelle Obama have appeared on the cover of a black women's lifestyle magazine in the US, with intimate photos of the loving couple setting the internet abuzz.
America's first couple posed for a series of romantic shots for the October issue of Essence, in which they spoke about their legacy.
However, it was the photos in which people were most interested, with many commenting on their evident love for each other and praising the First Lady's physique.
"The one and absolute only thing I like about the Obamas is their love for each other," Twitter user Jaimee Turner commented.

Another, Nichole, added: "Yes, black love. Yes, Obama love. And with all respect, black body love."
During her time in the White House, Mrs Obama has been an outspoken advocate of fitness and healthy eating, including posting a video that showed her kickboxing.
The First Lady, who also appeared on the front cover of Variety magazine last month, said the couple were proudest of their impact on African-American children.
"I think when it comes to black children, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them," she said.
"It matters. All the future work that Barack talked about, I think over these last few years, we've kind of knocked the ceiling of limitation off the roofs of many young kids; imaginations of what's possible for them.
