It's no secret that President Barack Obama takes pride in being athletic and playing sports, but he may have met his match in Japan.

According to Mashable, Obama played soccer with Honda's ASIMO robot while in Japan this week.

ASIMO, which stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, took a bow and then passed a soccer ball to the President, who said the robot's soccer skills were "pretty impressive".

While Obama seemed to enjoy his time playing soccer and chatting with ASIMO, he later said the robot was "a little scary." Can you blame him? Its similarity to humans is pretty unnerving.
