Doctors have given Vladimir Putin a maximum of three years to live, according to a Russian intelligence source.
The FSB official said the Russian president, 69, “suffered from a severe form of rapidly progressing cancer”.
And he added: “He doesn’t have more than two to three years to stay alive.”
The spy said the illness meant Putin was also losing his sight.
He revealed: “We have been told he suffers from a headache and when he appears on TV he needs slips of paper with everything written in big letters to read what he is going to say.
“They’re so big that each side can only hold a few sentences. His eyesight is seriously deteriorating.
“And his limbs are shaking uncontrollably now.”

Last week, Putin met with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko in Sochi and was caught on camera awkwardly twisting his feet as the two sat down for talks.
He also noticed strange movements on TV for the past week as he revealed he has Parkinson’s and MS in addition to cancer.
Ukrainian spymaster Kyrylo Budanov said: “He has several serious illnesses, including cancer.”
Putin’s final prognosis surfaced in a secret message from the Russian spy to FSB defector Boris Karpichkov, who is now hiding from Putin’s assassins in the UK.
The spook told him that Putin himself had to blink at the giant lettering given to him and startle staff with abrupt mood swings.
The message added: “He will not be wearing glasses to help as that would be a sign of weakness.
“He used to be composed with subordinates, but now he has outbursts of uncontrolled anger. He’s completely insane and trusts almost no one.”
Reports last week, citing Kremlin sources, claimed Putin underwent successful cancer surgery 14 days ago.
Former MI6 Russia staffer Christopher Steele said Putin cannot hold sessions without breaks in treatment.
He added: “He is constantly accompanied around the place by a team of doctors.
“The Kremlin is a bit like a shark tank. They all swim around and when they smell blood in the water they start fighting.”
It has gotten so bad that spy chiefs closest to Putin are actively talking about his successor and jostling for control of the handover.
The favorite is Aleksey Dyumin, 49, governor of the Tula region near Moscow. Once head of the president’s bodyguard, he claims to have saved Putin from a bear.
Also in the running are Astrakhan governor and former spy Igor Babushkin (52) and Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev (44).
He is the son of Putin pal Nikolai Patrushev, the former FSB chief who now heads the Russian Security Council.
