  Russian TV broadcast our Potter vote!
Updated 25 January 2003, 10.23
Some people think Dobby looks like Russian president Vladimir Putin
President Putin is on the right

Last week, we did a story about how some people reckon Dobby from the Potter films looks like the Russian president.

We even put up a vote asking people to say whether they thought president Vladimir Putin looks like the house-elf.

And so many of you have voted - more than 7,000 so far - that now the Russians want to know what all the fuss is about!

It's even going to be on Russian TV!

Potter/Putin

A Russian TV company, called NTV, called up CBBC Newsround Online and asked if they could run a story about our Potter/Putin vote.

They're going to tell the Russians all about how more than half of you reckon their president looks like cute Dobby from the Harry Potter movies.

Who'd have thought it?
