During his Wednesday spent in Tallinn, Estonia, the US President Barack Obama kept asking about Estonia’s e-State. Not surprisingly then, just before departure, local counterpart Toomas Hendrik Ilves slipped him a specimen of the Estonian identity card complete with the name and photo of Barack Obama.

The handing over of the ID card, enclosed in an envelope, happened as Mr Obama was about to enter his plane.
