Vladimir Putin's Lover Allegedly Vanishes After Giving Birth

A gymnast rumoured to be Vladimir Putin's lover cut contact with friends and 'vanished after giving birth to twins last year' - but regularly carries out touching gestures for a former team-mate, a pal has revealed. 

Alina Kabaeva, a famous 37-year-old Olympic gold medallist, has not been seen in public since 2018 when she was said to be two months pregnant with children thought to be fathered by Putin.

It was reported that Kabaeva gave birth to twin boys by caesarean section in April last year at a Moscow clinic but neither she nor Putin have confirmed this.
