Noel Gallagher has spoken out about his support for US President Barack Obama saying that if he doesn’t win the next election he'll run himself.

According to CNN, the 45-year-old former Oasis star said: "I don't know the ins and outs of his politics (but) for his procession to become President I was in America and his speeches were spine tingling.

“Barack Obama can talk, and coming after Bush it was something to behold.

“In my humble opinion, if he loses the next election to the other bunch then, good Lord, I will run myself."

Speaking about the success of his chart-topping album, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, he said: "The amount of tickets I've sold, the amount of records I've sold . . . I (just) didn't have any expectations for the new record.

“I thought I might stall at playing theatres for a couple of years but I've gone up to arenas before the end of the first year, so I'm blown away by that.”
