    Elton John has said he wants a meeting with Russia's President Putin over his 'ridiculous' stance on gay rights and 'stupid' remarks that visitors to the winter Olympics in Russia should 'leave the children in peace'.

    Elton John thinks President Putin called him to speak about gay rights. Putin says, 'Oh no I didn't'.

    Meanwhile, two infamous Russian pranksters say they made the call.

    The Russian 'prank' is going to air on state run TV in a couple of hours.

    Seems a little mean and gloating to me, for a state-run TV station? It wouldn't run if President Putin didn't want it to, I suspect.

    Well, well. President Putin really has called Elton John now, to arrange a meeting if they can 'arrange their schedules'.

    A Russian embassy official called Elton first, just to be sure there was no misunderstanding this time.
