Prime Minister Vladimir Putin of Russia has been showing off a new talent.

The BBC reports he's already been filmed driving a Formula One car, singing for an audience of Hollywood stars and saving a group of journalists from a tiger. He also holds a black belt in judo.

Now he's put on his skates to take part in a training session at an ice hockey tournament in Moscow.

On Friday, he took part in a 40-minute session with two teenage ice hockey teams.

The former president regularly seeks to portray his physical fitness.
