After Putin and the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev posted photos of themselves working out together, many pointed out how much they look like a gay couple.

The pair posed in a number of photos posted last weekend, in which they are total gym buddies.

After the workout the couple, *ahem* pair, enjoy a BBQ together and then a nice pot of tea.

Of course the irony that Putin is a strong supporter of Russia’s anti-gay law, banning the “promotion of non-traditional sexual relations”, did not go unnoticed on Twitter.

Apparently the couple enjoyed their time on a new gay resort…
