A former United States president is sitting courtside for tonight's Duke-North Carolina game at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham.

Barack Obama, a noted basketball fan, has shown up for the biggest rivalry game in college basketball.

The former United States president is looking pretty suave sitting courtside, too.

The 57-year-old former U.S. president is wearing a custom jacket with the No. 44 on the sleeve (for those unaware, Obama was the 44th president).

Check it out:

That's a pretty sweet jacket. Unfortunately for the former president, the Duke-North Carolina game has gotten off to a rough start. The best player in the country, Zion Williamson, appeared to suffer a knee injury in the game's opening seconds. There was a problem with Williamson's Nike shoe. "That the shoe blew out on National TV. That the shoe blew out for Duke-UNC. That the shoe blew out on Zion Williamson. Awful look for Nike," Darren Rovell tweeted.

It didn't look good.

Duke and UNC are currently playing on ESPN.
