G7 leaders discuss undressing for "cooler than Putin"


AFP reported that the G7 leaders discussed during their dinner whether to undress to show they were "cooler" than Russian President Vladimir Putin.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked: "Do we take our jackets off?"

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replied: "We have to wait until we take the official photo before undressing."

  • Johnson then joked that the leaders "must show that they are cooler than Putin."
  • Trudeau replied: "We're going to do a topless horse riding show."

Johnson added: "We have to show them our chest muscles."

Popular photographs were taken showing Putin naked to the waist on a horseshoe during his August 2009 holiday trip to Taiva when he was prime minister.
