White to play and checkmate in two moves.

[fen "5Kbk/6pp/6P1/8/7R/8/8/8 w KQkq - 0 1"]

Is it possible? If so, please write a solution.

1.Rh6

This puts Black in Zugzwang.

If 1...gxh6, 2.g7#

If Black moves the Bishop, 2.Rxh7#

    And it has to be 1 Rh6; any other move of the rook on the h-file would enable Black to push the h7 pawn and prevent 2 Rh7#. – Rosie F Apr 7 '18 at 18:59
