The daughter of former US president Barack Obama is reportedly dating a teenager from Suffolk.

Pictures have emerged online of 19-year-old Malia Obama kissing a fellow student at Harvard University in Massachusetts.

National newspapers have named Miss Obama’s potential new boyfriend as Rory Farquharson, who hails from Woodbridge where his family is thought to own a six-bed detached house worth £1.6 million.

Mr Farquharson, also 19, previously attended Rugby School in Warwickshire where he was made Head of School for the year 2015-16.

Friends from school told the Daily Mail he was “popular” and “quite a catch”, representing the institution in both rugby and golf.
