Vladimir Putin's rumoured health issues have been thrust into the spotlight again after the despotic leader was photographed clutching a table for support.
Since he began his invasion of Ukraine, it has been claimed Putin has incurable cancer, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's, and that he either has just three years to live.
And at a recent meeting with the director of the Russian National Guard, Viktor Zolotov, Putin has given his critics more amunition to stoke the medical fire.

Whilst discussing his invasion with Zolotov, Putin was photographed clutching a table as he spoke to his general.
His apparent frailty has been seen by many as a sign that all is not well within the Kremlin's elite.
Clips from earlier this year showed him resting his arms on a table and shaking as he speaks, which led to suggestions that Putin himself is aware of his deteriorating health and that this is one of the reasons for his brutal invasion of Ukraine.
Indeed, insiders, on the often cited General SVR Telegram channel, have claimed that his health is so bad that he can no longer attend meetings and that his health is now “sharply deteriorating”.
The insider claimed: “With a high degree of probability, we can say that soon the president will not be able to personally hold meetings and participate in large events."
They also claimed that this could now play a serious factor in the war and could eventually lead to Putin's downfall.
They added: “Various options were discussed, from the possibility of mobilising and using tactical nuclear weapons, to opening a second front in a third country, and, finally, to ‘gestures of good will’ with the return of the occupied territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv regions to Ukraine.
“This would mark the beginning of the end for him”.
Nobody has been truly able to confirm the status of Putin's health as the Kremlin has repeatedly ignored media requests.
