‘Suntanned’ Barack Obama jibe

The Italian-born Ms Bruni, who became a French national following her marriage to President Nicolas Sarkozy earlier this year, said: "When I hear Silvio Berlusconi making light of the event Obama's election and joking about the fact that Obama is "always tanned", it feels strange to me.

"Some people will no doubt put it down to humour, but often I find that I am pleased to have become French."

Italy's left-wing opposition parties have accused Mr Berlusconi of embarrassing the nation with the quip.

He responded by calling them "imbeciles" with no sense of humour.
