Still Waters

Whether he’s nonchalantly lowering himself into the icy waters of Lake Seliger or making short work of weights in the gym, Vladimir Putin is setting pulses racing in Japan, where his latest calendar is outselling those featuring homegrown celebrities.

The Loft chainstore, which has exclusive rights over sales of the calendar, reported that those featuring Russia’s 66-year-old president were dominating sales at its outlets across Japan.

With just two weeks of the year left, Putin’s calendars were more popular than those of Japanese actor Kei Tanaka and, in third place, Yuzuru Hanyu, the reigning Olympic men’s figure skating champion.

Apparently his penchant for appearing shirtless made him something of a gay icon a few years ago ?

There's a manga more or less inspired by him called "The Ride on King" where the hero looks like Putin, doesn't wear a shirt, and beats up monsters so he can ride them around.
