During his visit to the Altai State University, an alumni asked the head of state various questions, from affordable housing to Medvedev's personal interests.

"There is not that much spare time, I simply try to do sports mainly. Various events during the week, but on the day-off, on Sunday, there is a chance to do some sports," the president said.

I try to swim every day, I play badminton and I try to cycle almost every day, whereas in winter I go for alpine skiing, he said.

"I do sports, read books and watch films sometimes. There is not much spare time, but I like my job," Medvedev said.

He wished for students to find their place in life.
