Zinedine Zidane plays ball with Indinesian president

French soccer legend Zinedine Zidane kicked a ball around with Indonesia's president Friday on the manicured lawns of the state palace as hundreds of fans jostled to catch get a glimpse.

Zidane, in the country to promote a French food company, is popular in Indonesia where many fans have followed the performances of a fellow Muslim.

"You are a great man," President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono told Zidane after juggling a ball with him. "You are very famous here in Indonesia, you have a lot of fans who admire you."

Many palace workers brought their children along to see Zidane, creating a party atmosphere at the normally stuffy palace.

The three-time FIFA World Player of the Year is scheduled to hold coaching clinics with young children and open a new dairy facility during his two day stay in the country.
