Malia Obama's Harvard sophomore boyfriend is a former Rugby School head boy, national newspapers are reporting.

Rory Farquharson was linked to Malia Obama, Barack Obama's 19-year-old daughter, when the two were photographed kissing before a Harvard-Yale football game.

Mr Farquharson,19, was made 'head of school' at Rugby School for the 2015 to 2016 academic year.

He represented the school at golf and was involved with the Blue Bunsen Society - a chemistry club.

A school friend described him as popular and "quite a catch".

Miss Obama started at the Harvard this Autumn, matching her parents, who both attended the Ivy League university.

Rugby School is no stranger to worldwide attention, having nurtured Rugby's beloved William Webb Ellis as well as politicians, authors, poets and scientists.
