This is a very random story indeed. To celebrate his 56th birthday, Vladimir Putin has launched a judo instructional DVD. Who knew that the Russian prime minister was a black belt in judo?

The title of the martial arts workout tape is 'Let's Learn Judo with Vladimir Putin.' Unlike traditional fitness DVDs, this features a section where Prime Minister Putin discusses the history behind judo and the philosophy of martial arts.

Implications - This video certainly shows off the Prime Minister's athletic, protective side and is sure to be reassuring to many people who expect toughness from Putin. After all, the man in charge should know how to throw don't dont you think?
