Toronto, Mar 1 (ANI): US President Barack Obama will have to shell out 45.40 dollars for a case of 24 Molson Canadian, after he lost a bet to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Obama, 48, lost the bet after Sidney Crosby scored the winning goal in overtime to win the Olympic gold medal in men's hockey on February 28.

After the game, Harper, 50, visited the Canadian locker room, telling the players that he's looking forward to receiving that case of Molson.

"Guys, we're really proud of you all. You've done a great job on behalf of the country, not just this gold - which we all wanted so bad - but 14 gold, an Olympic record for any country in the Winter Olympics," the Globe and Mail quoted him as adding.

The bet had been that if the U.S. men's hockey team won, Harper would have to purchase a case of Yuengling for his U.S. counterpart.

Yuengling, based in Pennsylvania, is the oldest brewery in the United States. (ANI)
