Vladimir Putin is likely to have Parkinson's disease.

The Russian leader's health has been subject to speculation for months and the former head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove believes that the neurological condition is the most likely explanation for the tyrant's illness.

Dearlove told The Sun Online: "My view is there is still something wrong with him, medically.

"I'm not a clinician, but I know that a number of people have watched him closely, and they think that the most likely explanation is Parkinson's."

The former intelligence chief continued: "There's no proof - but he shows quite a lot of the symptoms. If he does have Parkinson's, that can certainly impair your judgement.

"The two favourite medical diagnoses through observing him is either Parkinson's or blood cancer, or maybe both.

"But the Russians will be desperate to make sure Putin's health is a state secret."

Dearlove has warned that the "preconditions for the disappearance or collapse" of the Putin regime have been set as the disastrous war in Ukraine continues and even claimed that the despot could be "shuffled" off to a sanitorium and never seen again.

He said: "It's quite possible they just shuffle him off into a sanitorium and say he's unwell, and then he doesn't reappear.

"Talking to someone from central Europe who I regard as pretty well informed, he said you have the preconditions now for there to be a pretty sudden end to the Putin administration, or to Putin himself.

"It's impossible to say when that's going to happen. He's definitely in a very difficult place - there's no question about that.

"I think you have the preconditions for his disappearance or collapse - which could be violent."
