Barack Obama wowed the crowd at Auckland's Viaduct Events Centre despite being:
hungover, sunburnt and really tired from playing so much golf.
Newshub's Patrick Gower told The AM Show on Friday morning the former US President cast a spell on the 900 attendees regardless.
"Incredible to see him so close... We were about 15m away from Barack Obama," he told host Duncan Garner, who was there with him.
"Barack Obama was exhausted... John Key was exhausted and Duncan Garner was exhausted."
Barack is leaving New Zealand later today (Friday).
