1.    Vladimir Putin sings patriotic duet with schoolgirl - Telegraph
Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister, struck a rare false note yesterday when he attempted to sing a patriotic love duet with a pigtailed schoolgirl.

Normally a man of prodigious talent, equally adept at handling a rifle or a paintbrush as he is an opponent on the judo mat, the ex-KGB spy fell curiously flat when he turned his efforts to song.

Providing the Russian people with a rare glimpse of his compassionate side, the former KGB spy came to the assistance of a crestfallen pupil at a Moscow boarding school after she stumbled during the performance of a famous wartime song.
