"For those who missed the "Health" program with Elena Malysheva, here's the summary: 2 months ago she took a DNA sample from the famous people to determine their ancestry. Inviting us to the program, Elena announced sensational news: @nickvaluev is my cousin on my father's side. Our chromosomes are the same! I do not know where the relatives of the father "dripped their DNA", but next to such brother I feel comfortable! "- Wrote the broadcaster.
Following the newfound brother spoke Nikolay Valuev:
"Genetic prank on the "Health" program, where it became clear that Andrei Malakhov and I are second cousins on the Turkish line. So we are Chingiz Khan's, and sultans. No wonder I was on the list of best Russian Tatars, apparently. Oh, now I understand what my grandmother wanted to keep silent. Now let them talk".
