The annual Easter Egg Roll was held at the White House on Monday, and several athletes were on hand for it, as this year's egg roll focused on a physical fitness theme.

There were sports and fitness zones on the South Lawn for participants to enjoy, which gave President Barack Obama the chance to show off some of his skills. He played basketball with John Wall, Paul Pierce and Bradley Beal of the Wizards, as well as Calais Campbell of the Arizona Cardinals.

He even hit the game-winning basket and made sure to let Pierce know about it.

But that wasn't all. The president also got to play tennis with Caroline Wozniacki, the No. 5 women's tennis player in the world.

Naturally, President Obama was quite excited when he actually scored a point on her.

All in all it seemed like a great day at the White House. The real winners of the day were the kids themselves, who got to not only participate in the Easter Egg Roll on the White House South Lawn, but meet people like Wall, Pierce, Wozniacki and of course, the president.
