The votes are in and Vladimir Putin has been named Russia's man of the year for the 15th year running.

The Russian president won the political category with 68 per cent of the vote. He has won every year since becoming prime minister in 1999, Interfax reported.

Independent Russian pollster Public Opinion Foundation asked 1,500 people in 43 Russian regions who their men of the year were in a range of fields.

But in sport 68 per cent of people had no answer at all, while in culture 75 per cent of people could not think of anyone.
