Tennis star Serena Williams is rooting for Barack Obama to become America's next president, even though her religion forbids her from voting.
Williams and her sister Venus are among several million Jehovah's Witnesses in the U.S. who are forced to remain politically neutral and restricted from taking part in elections.
But the champ is secretly hoping Democrat Obama wins.
She says, "I don't really get involved in political affairs because of the way I was brought up, and, being a Jehovah's Witness, but it's exciting to see someone like Barack Obama have a chance to lead one of the world's biggest nations.
"It's good. It makes my heart smile."
