In 2010, Russian President Vladimir Putin went missing briefly. As is the case with his disappearance now, conspiracy theorists took full advantage of the knowledge gap to peddle their wares.

On his reemergence a few days later, however, something had indeed appear to have changed: his face. During his usual press rounds Putin's face appeared puffier than usual and despite heavy makeup used to disguise it, almost all the media present during his press appearances reported that he was sporting a black eye.
