Several world leaders have tried in recent years to impress the crowds with a topless holiday shoot – with varying degrees of success.
Vladimir Putin became a sex symbol in Russia after he was pictured stripped down to the waist in the summer in Siberia.

David Cameron has tried to get in on the act, while bodyboarding in South Africa.
And Bill Clinton appeared in his trunks while in Honolulu in 1993 – but his figure wasn’t a patch on Mr Obama’s.
Mr Obama, 47, who takes office next month, is a fitness fanatic and refused to give up his daily workouts even during the heat of the campaign.
He was born in Hawaii and travels there every Christmas with his wife Michelle and daughters Malia, ten, and Sasha.
