The secrets of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s buff physique and youthful appearance are the result of herbal health remedies and swimming regularly to combat stress, his doctor revealed Monday.

Putin “doesn’t look his age,” the Kremlin’s top doctor Sergei Mironov told Russian weekly Itogui, chiefly because the 60-year-old is “sceptical about medication.”

Russia’s strongman “prefers grandmother’s remedies: tea with honey, the sauna or massage” to keep him looking young, complemented by regular swimming and taking care to get enough sleep, Mironov said.
