London, Jun 18: Brazil's playboy magazine is set to hit the market shelves with a photograph featuring President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
The 63-year-old appear fully clothed in a photograph reproduced alongside the magazine's nude centrefold, a Rio de Janeiro dancer and model who looks as if she is about to plant a kiss on the head of state's image.
And surprisingly the Brazilian premier isn't aware of his photo being used.
"Nobody knew they were going to use a photo of the president in this shoot. It was a surprise," the Telegraph quoted spokesman for the president said.
"Absolutely they did not ask for permission," he added.
The spokesperson also said that he doesn't know whether the president would take action against the publication.
