Former Italian PM in 'dead Putin' gaffe

Former Italian Prime Minister Julio Andreotti has made an embarrassing slip-up on a TV talk show. He said he was present at Russian President Vladimir Putin's funeral.

An embarassed audience and the presenter tried to correct the politician, but he continued.

Andreotti only noticed his slip of the tongue at the end of the show, and corrected himself by saying he meant the first Russian president, Boris Yeltsin, who died in 2007.
