DAVID Cameron has revealed Barack Obama “tucked him in” as he took a nap on Air Force One.
Cameron snoozed on the legendary plane after two leaders flew out to Ohio for a basketball game in 2012.
CAM TO BED
Shattered by jet-lag Obama noticed his guest looked tired and led him to the nose of AF1 where there was a bedroom.
Cameron told the Chris Evans Virgin Radio Breakfast Show: “There was a blanket with the White House crest on it and I lay on the bed.
“He said I’ll put the blanket over you and as he was tucking me in, he said I bet I bet you know Roosevelt never did this for Churchill.
He said ‘I’ll put the blanket over you’ and as he was tucking me in, he said ‘I bet I bet you know Roosevelt never did this for Churchill.’
“So who says the special relationship isn’t going strong? But we got on very well. I liked him, he was extremely nice.”
Cameron also revealed how Boris Johnson injured one of his children with a crunching tackle during a football match at Chequers.
The former PM said Boris and a few others were enjoying one of the regular sports matches they had on the residence’s lawn when play was stopped for an injury.
He said: “Boris is a very competitive player. He has got quite grown up children and I think it was his son Milo and he tackles him.
“There was a little crunch. It wasn’t a leg breaker. I think it probably would’ve got a yellow card rather than a rather than a red.
There was a little crunch. It wasn’t a leg breaker. I think it probably would’ve got a yellow card rather than a rather than a red.
“So the game was briefly stopped but I think they continue. But they were Johnson’s on both sides so yeah it was it was fair game.”
Cameron made the revelations as he promoted his explosive memoirs.
While his recent anecdotes aren’t likely to get him in trouble – insight into his relationship with the queen has seen him plunged into hot water.
The monarch issued an extraordinary slap down to Cameron yesterday for blabbing about her intervention in the Scots referendum.
In an unprecedented rebuke a Buckingham Palace source said the former PM’s admission had caused a “an amount of displeasure” with the 93-year-old monarch.
A source also told the BBC that “it serves no one’s interests” for conversations between the prime minister and the Queen to be made public and “it makes it very hard for the relationship to thrive.”
Mr Cameron himself admitted yesterday that he should not have broken long-standing Royal protocol to reveal he had lobbied Her Majesty to make her controversial intervention just days before the knife-edge poll in September 2014.

Quizzed about it, Mr Cameron revealed he wanted Her Majesty to hit back at then-SNP boss Alex Salmond’s claim that the Queen would be happy to rule over an independent Scotland.
He said he had asked whether the Queen could “raise an eyebrow” ahead of the referendum – and days later Her Majesty said people should “think carefully about the future”.
Yesterday Mr Cameron admitted he had revealed “perhaps a little bit too much” about the controversial request to intervene.
