Michelle Obama Wins Push up challenge in Ellen DeGeneres Show [VIDEO]

U.S. first lady Michelle Obama beat chat show host Ellen DeGeneres in a push up challenge, during the latter's talk show.

Michelle finished 25 push ups before the audience, during the show.

"I thought it wouldn't be good to show up the first lady so I stopped. Because I thought this looks bad that I'm going to beat her. I'm 54 and you're 48," joked DeGeneres after stopping first.

Michelle Obama's appearance on the talk show was part of promotion of her healthy eating and fitness programme "Let's Move".

The talk show was recorded on Wednesday and would be telecast on Thursday.
