Is Leonardo da Vinci´s boytoy The Mona Lisa?

Is Leonardo da Vinci´s student, and some historians claim; male lover, Gian Giacomo Caprotti – depicted above as John the Baptist – the person Leo modelled his mysterious Mona Lisa after?

One researcher, at least, is sure. Silvano Vinceti presented his findings this week, after years of research into the unknown origins of the Mona Lisa model.

The Mona Lisa Painting has been source to much controversy, and the fact that it´s painted over many years have fueled speculations for decades.

To be honest i do see a resemblance between Gian as John the Baptist and Mona Lisa, so maybe Silvano is right?
