Who could forget such classics as him riding a horse while topless showing the world that he shaves his chest like an ageing Love Island wannabe.

Vladimir may look like he has the personality of a mute cardigan salesman – but the reality is that he’s much more boring than that.
Another picture shows the Kremlin strongman frolicking with two terrified-looking dogs who can evidently sense they are in the presence of human-mannequin dummy.
There’s a rumour in Moscow that Vlad has never had any friends – apparently it started because it’s 100 per cent true.
