The Russian Foreign Minister was described as ‘so gay lover of’ in a subtitle blunder during a Channel 4 report.
Sergey Lavrov was the subject of a report discussing a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry.
And knowing the internet, the hilarious gaffe prompted a plethora of responses online.
‘I wager this was NOT an accident,’ one Twitter user said.
Another added: ‘So Gay Lover? Wahaha, Putin will go mental.’
‘Loving this!!! Sweet, sweet irony is just delicious,’ another user said.
