Dozens of women have asked to be made pregnant by a prehistoric iceman who died 5,000 years ago.

The body of “Otzi the Iceman” was discovered by hikers in 1991 as ice melted in the Schnalstal glacier, high in the Italian Alps.

Alex Susanna, director of the Bozen Museum where his body is exhibited, says requests have been received by many women wanting to have Otzi’s babies.

He told Austrian broadcasting company ORF that all of the requests had been turned down, not least because Otzi’s penis had decayed away.
