He's been photographed riding a horse bare-chested and hunting a tiger, now Russian President Vladimir Putin's been pictured sharing a morning workout with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

They were shown on state TV working out at a gym in Sochi, the Kremlin leader keeping his shirt on this time.

The two political heavyweights try out a number of muscle-building machines before retiring for breakfast and a cup of tea.

Putin regularly appears in state-run media performing manly stunts, which in the past have included flying a fighter jet, finding ancient treasures on the seabed, riding motorcycles and flying a hangglider – often bare-chested.

He has previously been photographed on a fishing holiday with Medvedev.
