A man in Russia who identifies himself as a 'pastafarian' has won the right to wear a colander on his head in his driving licence photograph.

Andrei Filin is a follower of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster - a light-hearted United States-based faith which satirises organised religion.

Mr Filin said that the kitchenware was part of his religion.
