Russian lawyers have claimed that the Harry Potter franchise character 'Dobby' is based on their president Vladimir Putin.

The lawyers who are planning to sue Warner Brothers, believe that they can prove that the 'bald, floppy-eared, pointy-nosed, bug-eyed' elf is based on the Russian leader, the Guardian reported.

BBC's children's website CBBC went to post a poll on the matter, which circulated similar suggestions on the internet in recent months.
