Vladimir Putin to give Nicolas Sarkozy judo lessons!September 16th, 2008 - 2:21 pm ICT by ANI
London, September 16 (ANI): Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has promised to teach President Nicolas Sarkozy judo.
The former president has revealed that Sarkozy wants to take some lessons on his martial arts skills.
“He is interested in martial arts and we have decided to do some training together,” the Telegraph quoted him as telling Le Figaro, one of the leading French morning daily newspapers.
Officials at Sarkozys office have not confirmed the forthcoming judo sessions.
Putin, a former colonel in the KGB, has often been filmed and photographed in white judo pyjamas wrestling opponents to the floor.
While his martial prowess has been long documented, Sarkozy has become more associated with jogging. (ANI)
