BOXING veteran Vitali Klitschko has been re-elected as the Mayor of Kiev.

Wladimir congratulated his big brother on Twitter, claiming: "Now he fights for the people."

Vitali turned to politics after he ended his boxing career with a record of 45-2 including 41 knockouts.

The 49-year-old has been serving as the Mayor of Kiev since 2014.

And he has been re-elected after receiving 50.52 per cent of the votes.

It is reported that 365,161 residents voted for him compared to 68,757 for runner-up Oleksandr Popov.

After the news was announced, Wladimir turned to Twitter to congratulate his brother.

Wladimir wrote: "Kyiv has elected @Vitaliy_Klychko as the City Mayor.

"Vitali has always been a fighter, now he fights for the people and he's evolved through experience into quite an empathetic manager.

"He serves our great country and I can't stop thinking how proud our dad would be of him."

Two-time heavyweight champion Wladimir retired from boxing in 2017.

He called time on his fighting career with an impressive record of 64-5 including 53 knockouts.

His last two fights saw him lose to Tyson Fury in 2015 and Anthony Joshua in 2017.

AJ has since hinted he could follow in the footsteps of Vitali into politics when he retires.

But Wladimir, 44, still looked fighting fit as he showed off his ripped physique this summer.
