Vladimir Putin's new workout video is hilarious

When David Cameron and George Osbourne get together for a photograph it will produce one of two images: the pair are scoffing biscuits next to the budget box, or wandering around some grim construction site pointing at things and wearing hardhats because some overly concerned health and safety officers told them to.

A world away from Russia, of course, where President Vladimir Putin and his Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev do things slightly differently...

Much like this weekend, after attending a martial arts competition called Russia vs the World (because of course they did), the pair were captured on camera furiously pumping iron and then cooking vast amounts of meat. Totally natural, guys! They probably didn’t even know anyone was watching.

Not one to shirk an opportunity to get sweaty on camera, Putin is clearly the one in charge in the clip, showing his one-time rival how to make the most of the equipment while also going for it on the weights himself. Notice how he’s also in full control of the grill too? A real power player.

Wrestler. Fisherman. Bird migrator. Kung Fu expert. And now a gym nut? Should World War III ever come down to an arm wrestle, we’d best plan for the worst.

We also expect Putin's forthcoming workout DVD to knock Claire from Steps' off the top of the bestsellers chart.
