President Barack Obama's gift of an iPod to the Queen seems to have caught almost as much attention as the G20 summit itself.

The Sun newspaper used the present as an excuse for a classic pun, headlining the story: "My husband and iPod".

The paper says The Queen already has an iPod which can hold 100,000 songs.

Whether it has any of the material on the iPod given to her by Obama is unknown.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama also presented the queen with a rare coffee table book of songs by composers Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart that Rodgers had signed in May 1952.

To bring the 240-plus page book to life, the iPod was loaded with dozens of classic show tunes, including several from Camelot, which was based on the King Arthur legend, and My Fair Lady, which was set in London.

The iPod also includes photos and video from The Queen's 2007 visit to Virginia and Washington, photos from Obama's inauguration in January this year and audio of his inauguration address.

In return The Queen and Prince Philip gave the Obamas a signed portrait of themselves.
