New York: US President Barack Obama was spotted popping a piece of Nicorette gum while seated alongside former President George H.W. Bush during a White House ceremony on Monday.

Obama was caught making the subtle move by Fox News cameras at a ceremony to recognize the Points of Light volunteer program, the New York Daily News reported.

It seems that the President, who reportedly quit smoking in 2011, still relies on gum to fight his nicotine urges.
