IN TWEETS: French & Croatian presidents get soaked as Putin gets umbrella

People think Vladimir Putin got FIFA official to steal World Cup medal for him

Putin, who was in attendance at the Luzhniki Stadium with French President Emmanuel Macron and Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, congratulated his counterparts after a thrilling world cup final.

The president has relaxed visa restrictions for Britons who obtained Fan IDs in the hope they will return to Russian Federation for their holidays in the near future. Eleven host cities, namely Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara, were selected to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup. I am sure that in four years we will see the same energy, the same positive influence in Qatar as we have seen in Russian Federation.

"The legacy of this tournament is that it will put Russian Federation at the top of the countries in footballing terms", he admitted. "I am sure everyone liked the way they played, and so did I". I can certainly say we have fallen in love with Russian Federation. Qatar's World Cup has been mired in controversy, from the alleged bribery during the bidding process to the widespread reports of mass casualties among migrant workers who have been charged with building the stadiums for the event.

History was made as Didier Deschamps became the third person ever to win the World Cup both as a player and as a manager, while Kylian Mbappé became the third teenager to play in a World Cup final.

Putin, at the ceremony, expressed gratitude to footballers and fans alike. We hope to enjoy a fruitful partnership until 2022. The stadia will be equipped with cooling systems that are environmentally friendly overcoming the challenging environmental nature of the country.

"Though it will be hard to repeat that success as we are a small country, but we are very keen on sport, " he said.
