Intelligence whistle-blower Edward Snowden appears to have caught the eye of former Russian spy Anna Chapman.

A woman believed to be Chapman, an agent sent home to Russia in 2010 as part of the biggest spy swap since the Cold War, tweeted “Snowden, will you marry me?” from an unverified account on Wednesday.

She cheekily followed it up with a tweet to @nsa –though the account does not represent the agency Snowden leaked secrets about - asking if it would "look after our children."
