From one rippling torso to another

A well-sculpted bronze of Vladimir Putin's widely admired pecs is set to adorn the gubernatorial mansion in California thanks to the Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation of Russia.
Golden State governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, a man who knows a thing or two about bodybuilding, is apparently an avid collector of sculptural portraits, and already has busts of Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin on the mantelpiece.
So a Russian sculptor has been commissioned to recreate the likeness of the all-action PM to complete Arnie's set - though it is not known whether he'll be shown in one of his shirtless-in-Siberia adventure poses.
