Czech President Milos Zeman was confronted by a topless female protester with "Zeman, Putin’s Slut" scrawled across her chest as voting began on January 12 in the first round of the country's presidential election.
Shouting the same slogan, the woman ran towards Zeman, who is running for a second term, in the polling station in the Czech capital, Prague, before being quickly wrestled to the ground by Zeman's bodyguards.
Zeman was quickly escorted out and returned to cast his vote shortly afterwards.
Zeman is facing eight challengers, with opinion polls showing his most serious opponent is Jiri Drahos, a chemistry professor and two-time president of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
On the eve of the election, Zeman stayed away from a final debate on national television, citing a prior engagement to take part in a talk-show on another channel.
