Washington, Dec 20: Donning a Santa Clause hat, Former Us President Barack Obama paid a surprise visit to the Children’s National Medical Center.

The 44th President armed with a sack of gifts delighted young patients and kids with gifts and hugs.

The hospital took Twitter to share a video of  Obam’s visit.

“Thank you @BarackObama for making our patients’ day so much brighter. Your surprise warmed our hallways and put smiles on everyone’s faces”, the hospital tweeted.

Wearing a red Santa hat, the former US President toured the medical centre. He met with patients and their families acting as a “stand-in” for Santa, handing out gifts to children.

“Merry Christmas and happy holidays to the extraordinary kids, families, and staff at Children’s National,” Obama said in a tweet.

“And thanks for humouring me as your stand-in Santa”, he added.

According to media reports, last week US First Lady Melania Trump also made a trip to the hospital, reading patients a Christmas story during her visit.
