Amid soft laughter, Johnson joked “we have to show we’re tougher than (Russian President Vladimir) Putin.”
Trudeau joined in, suggesting the group take part in a “shirtless horseback riding show”, before Johnson replied: “We need to show them our pecs”. While Johnson’s pectoral muscles have remained covered throughout his political career, Putin has occasionally ditched his shirt for outdoor photo ops, including horseback riding, fishing trips and freezing swims in the mountains. Siberians, RT reported.
An avid sportsman and fitness enthusiast, Putin told an Austrian journalist in 2018 that “when I’m on vacation, I don’t see the need to hide behind the bushes, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”
Trudeau was also photographed shirtless while jogging in Toronto and on a hike in Gatineau Park in Quebec.
