Tesla CEO Elon Musk has challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to a duel.

Writing Putin's name in Russian, he tweeted: "I'm now challenging Vladimir Putin to single combat."

The billionaire added that "Ukraine" is at stake.

The challenge quickly went viral, with crypto expert Travladd Crypto tweeting: "I need some of what you're drinking, brother".

And @GreenTeaMonster wrote: "I think it's best for world leaders to settle this man to man.

"So Zelensky vs. Putin.  Also if the world changed the rules that world leaders would have to fight instead of their military, I think we can all agree that Manny Pacquiao should win this next election."

One user asked Musk, in Russian, if he would be "surprised" if the despotic Russian leader accepted the challenge, to which he replied: "It would be an honor".

He then went on to tag the Kremlin's Twitter account directly, asking whether or not Putin "accepts" the challenge.

Within minutes of the challenge being made, the 50-year-old founder of SpaceX and Tesla's tweet - to his 77.6 million followers - had been retweeted more than 6,800 times, with more than 32,000 likes.
