Sunday, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was on the receiving end of a questionable call by the Seattle Seahawks that led to the Malcolm Butler interception that secured his team's victory in the Super Bowl. Four days later, he received another call.

President Barack Obama called Belichick to congratulate him and the Pats on the win.

According to the White House, Obama took notice of how many players contributed to the victory, specifically naming Butler and Tom Brady.

Obama also told Belichick that he is looking forward to the day the championship team visits the White House.
