Following the success of his photoshoot tour in the Siberian Mountains, Russian leader Vladimir Putin has decided to resign and follow a modelling career as a gay icon.
It is expected that he will front the cover of "Gay News" in the coming weeks, followed by a tour of dance bars in San Francisco.
"Qr" magazine have shown an interest in a full nude shoot, and "Gay & Lesbian News" are gearing up for a full biography and coming out story of the Russian leader.
A spokesman for "Gay News" said, "We're very happy to have secured the first cover story with this beast. He's an absolute stunner, and he knows it. We just hope that he doesn't grow the moustache and gets a leather jacket, that's such a cliché."
Russia has denied plans to change their flag to a rainbow one.
