The G7 heads of state and government mock Putin during a round table talk in Germany

Boris Johnson and his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau mocked shirtless Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin at a meeting of world leaders.

The two prime ministers joked about the Russian president at the G7 summit in Bavaria, Germany, where the sun was shining and the mercury topped 28C.

As the leaders greeted each other, Mr Johnson asked if he should keep his jacket on, then said: “Shall we undress?”

He added: “We have to show that we are tougher than Putin.”

Mr Trudeau quipped “riding shirtless” in reference to infamous images of the Kremlin despot taking off his shirt for a trip to the mountains.

Then Mr Johnson could be heard saying: “We need to show our pecs.”

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen added: “Horse riding is the best.”

The couple also joked about the size of their official plane during talks on the sidelines of the summit.

Mr Johnson told Canada’s Prime Minister that he spotted “Canada Force One” on the tarmac at Munich Airport as he landed from the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in the Rwandan capital of Kigali this morning.

“Can Force One”, as the aircraft is known, is an Airbus A310 categorized as a CC-150 Polaris.

Mr Trudeau joked that Mr Johnson’s Airbus A321 plane was larger – while the British Prime Minister insisted his jet was ‘very modest’.

The Tory leader was forced to use the smaller of his two planes because of protocol, Prince Charles was using the Airbus A330 RAF Voyager to fly to Rwanda.

The Voyager was converted from a troop carrier and an air-to-air tanker for use by the British Prime Minister and aides on overseas voyages.

The makeover cost taxpayers £10million – and when Mr Johnson got into the Number 10 he requested a £900,000 livery to change the plane from military gray to patriotic red, white and blue.
