    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Freshly re-elected President of Poland Andrzej Duda laughed off the prank call he was featured in by saying he had suspected he had been duped.

    A day prior, Russian pranksters Vovan and Lexus posted a video on their YouTube channel with an audio recording of Vovan calling Duda while posing as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

    "During the conversation, I felt that something was wrong. The secretary-general does not pronounce the word ‘zubrowka’ so well, even though the voice was very similar," Duda wrote on his Twitter account.

    ​Zubrowka, the Polish variation of vodka, was mentioned in the third minute of an 11-minute conversation.

    Duda won 51 percent in a runoff vote on Sunday to secure another four years as head of state. Duda is seen as a conservative strongman whose presidency has been marked by distancing relations with the European Union.
