A good three weeks after the final victory of the US team Tampa Bay Lightning in the professional ice hockey league NHL against the Canadian franchise Montreal Canadiens, a package with Montreal smoked meat sandwiches is on the way to the White House in Washington.

US President Joe Biden and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had apparently made a bet - with the better outcome for Biden.

“I had some time to recover from the heartbreaking defeat of the Canadiens in the Stanley Cup final,” Trudeau tweeted. “A bet is a bet.

A packet of Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwiches is on its way to you, Mr. President!

And congratulations to the Tampa Bay Lightning on their victory. "

“I know it's not easy to lose.

But thank you for keeping your end of the bet, "Biden replied." And congratulations again to Tampa Bay Lightning on their second NHL win in a row.

You have made your country proud. "
