John Kerry Works on Soccer Skills During Visit to Afghanistan (GIF)

The Obama administration appears to be big on sports diplomacy.

President Barack Obama has never been shy about sharing his love for sports, and he now has new Secretary of State John Kerry in the mix as well. Kerry was seen heading a soccer ball during his recent visit to Afghanistan.

For a politician who once pulled a Martha Coakley and called some amalgamation of the Red Sox “Manny Ortez,” this is a marked improvement. A greater header — and with that hair!

Check out Kerry’s soccer skills in the GIF below.
