While Team USA took on Brazil on the basketball court Monday night, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama found themselves playing a game of their own – one against the Kiss Cam!

As the POTUS and FLOTUS took in the pre-Olympic match-up at the Verizon Center in Washington, cameras immediately cut to the Obamas, who sat courtside with Vice President Joe Biden.

When the Kiss Cam landed on the First Couple during the first half of the game, they simply smiled and posed, leaving fans eager for a presidential kiss disappointed.

But when the Kiss Cam broadcast the Obamas’ image again during the fourth quarter, the POTUS promptly wrapped his arm around his wife of almost 20 years, delivering a sweet kiss on her lips and forehead.

The crowd erupted in cheers, chanting “Four more years!”

Team USA defeated Brazil 80-69.
