A SHOPPER thought he had made a mis-steak when he was stunned to see Russian leader Vladimir Putin in the freezer section of his local Aldi.
Musician Matt Gordon, 39, did a double take as he saw the uncanny resemblance of Putin staring back at him from the meat rack.
The £2.99 Aberdeen Angus sizzle steak on sale at Aldi in their Croydon, south London branch left Matt thinking someone was taking the brisket.
He told The Sun:”I was looking for something to eat for my tea and walked past the meat section when I was stopped in my tracks.
“I couldn’t believe it. I had to keep going back. The resemblance was amazing. My Aberdeen Angus sizzle steak looked just like Vladimir Putin.
“I walked past it a couple of times and each time it looked more and more like Putin.
“I had hardly any battery on my phone but I had to take a picture for my friends and when I showed them they were in stitches.”
Matt added:”I didn’t buy it in the end – I didn’t want to be responsible for sizzling Vladimir Putin who knows what might have happened to me. I might have ended up being well done myself.”
