Visiting U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, watched the last day of the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo on May 26 alongside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie.

Trump climbed into the dohyo to present the massive "U.S. President's Cup" to the tournament winner, Asanoyama, a No. 8 maegashira, in the awards ceremony after the conclusion of the 15-day tournament.

According to the White House, the U.S. President's Cup is a custom-made silver trophy, which is about 137 centimeters in height and weighs 27 to 32 kilograms. It is even larger than the Emperor’s Cup, the top prize given to the tournament winner, which is 107 cm high and weighs 29 kg.

The U.S. President's Cup is similar to the Emperor’s Cup in shape. However, a figure of a bald eagle, the national bird of the United States, adorns the top of the trophy.
