The King lives... and is busy ruling France

U.S. President George Bush has compared French President Nicolas Sarkozy with the king of rock 'n' roll Elvis Presley. Speaking at the NATO summit in Romania, Bush said Sarkozy was the latest incarnation of The King.

The French leader has been making headlines around the world ever since his whirlwind romance and marriage to the glamorous former model Carla Bruni.

Sarkozy has praised Bush for being the first U.S. leader to understand the need for a strong defence in Europe.
