From the Daily Mail -Before awarding the gift that has been dubbed the ‘Trump Cup’ to the wrestler, the U.S. president read from a certificate of commemoration for Asanoyama printed on a Japanese scroll.’In honor of your outstanding achievement as sumo grand champion I hereby award you the President’s Cup,’ he said, announcing the date, including the era of the new emperor, Reiwa.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had struggled to lift a slightly smaller trophy that he alone presented to the sumo wrestler who had the highest score in the 15-day tournament that was taking place at Ryōgoku Kokugikan Stadium in Tokyo.

Watch:

In a tweet before he went to sleep, Trump insisted he’d had a good time. ‘Tonight in Tokyo, Japan at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan Stadium, it was my great honor to present the first-ever U.S. President’s Cup to Sumo Grand Champion Asanoyama. Congratulations! A great time had by all, thank you @AbeShinzo!!’
