Gay sports presenter Clare Balding has given President Vladimir Putin a hilarious dig live on the BBC.
The broadcaster, who is in Sochi for the Winter Olympic Games, was introducing the infamous double luge.
‘Now technically, this could be a mixed pairing. It could be two women,’ she said.
‘But historically it has always been two men because that’s the quickest way to get down the course.
‘Now I’m very much hoping President Putin is going to go up to the Sliding Center to watch this one in person.’
