Sir Elton John has urged his fellow celebrities not to boycott Russia over new legislation banning gay propaganda, insisting their star power is needed in the country to help "challenge" the law.

He recently ignored calls to pull out of a pair of concerts in Kazan and Moscow earlier this month to protest the ban, which outlaws the promotion of homosexuality to minors, but the openly-gay singer refused to listen to protesters, claiming he owed it to fans there to perform.

During his Moscow show last week, Elton risked the wrath of Russian authorities by admitting he was "sad to learn" about the ruling and condemned it as "inhumane".
