    Boris Yeltsin has bucked the kicket. The irony of a guy named Smirnov announcing it is too much though. Wonder how he passed away?
    Former Russian President Boris Yeltsin has died aged 76, a Kremlin official said today.

    Kremlin spokesman Alexander Smirnov told The Associated Press news agency that Yeltsin had died.

    Mr Smirnov gave no cause of death or further information.

    If I drank as much as him I wouldn't be asleep I'd be in a coma.
