Former US president Barack Obama cracked up some 200 emerging leaders participating in a planery session in Kuala Lumpur on Friday when he answered to a question on the last time he had an “ego check”.

Barack joked and credited Michelle, his wife of 27 years and their two daughters for “not impressed with him,” adding that Michelle was someone who has kept his ego in check, so whenever she praised him, he knew it was honest.
