American President bowled over by tennis star Ana Ivanovic – wife of United ace Bastian Schweinsteiger
US PRESIDENT-ELECT Donald Trump labelled the wife of Manchester United star Bastian Schweinsteiger the most beautiful woman he had even seen.
Trump has become one of the most powerful people in the world after his shock victory in the American elections left him waiting to move into the White House.
But the billionaire businessman, who has been dogged by accusations of misogyny throughout his controversial campaign, also appears to have taken a fancy to tennis star Ana Ivanovic.
The Serb former world number one married United midfielder Schweinsteiger last summer – but not before Trump had given his verdict on her appearance.
During a meeting three years ago with then Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic, is seems the topic of Ivanovic suddenly came up.
And Trump said: “She is the most beautiful woman I have seen in my life. Simply the most beautiful.”
Quite why a meeting between a head of state and then businessman should have turned to discussions about Ivanovic remains to be seen.
Germany World Cup winner Schweinsteiger is currently trying to force his way back into the first team picture at United after being frozen out at the start of the season.
Manager Jose Mourinho invited the midfielder back to train with the first team squad last week, having originally decided he was surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.
But Schweinsteiger still appears to be a long way off being selected, with Mourinho claiming he was being used to help with his training plans by making up the numbers.
