Vladimir Putin claims he's an Elton John fan.

The Russian president has been at the centre of controversy after passing a law to ban homosexual 'propaganda' at the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, but claims there is no prejudice against gay people in Russia and he is a fan of the 'Candle in the Wind' singer.

Vladimir said: ''Elton John is an extraordinary person, a distinguished musician. And millions of Russian people sincerely love him, regardless of his sexual orientation.''

The 61-year-old politician went on to argue that there couldn't be any discrimination against homosexuals in his country, because of the popularity of the 66-year-old singer and that he has gay friends.
