Michelle Obama thanks 'Silver Fox' husband on The Tonight Show

Michelle Obama has paid a playful tribute to her husband during her last appearance as first lady on The Tonight Show.

In a sketch during the Jimmy Fallon show she penned a letter to outgoing President Barack Obama.

She wrote: "Thank you Barack, for proving you're not a lame duck, but my very own Silver Fox."

"I'm angling for a good gift," she said afterwards, with a smile.

Mrs Obama and Fallon reminisced jokingly about their first time seeing each other at The White House.

Mrs Obama has often used her appearances on US TV to promote her campaign to get Americans to exercise and eat healthily.

The Obamas will leave The White House on 20 January, when Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th US President.
