Putin Takes a Tumble During His Victory Lap

Vladimir Putin

The Russian president, 66, participated in an annual exhibition hockey game in Sochi on Friday, but his game wasn't the most memorable part of the event.

It comes after Putin suffered embarrassment during North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un's visit to Russian Federation.

Vladimir Putin who scored eight goals during the game clearly did not see the red carpet on the ice that caused the fall while he waved at the crowd during an ice-hockey game in Sochi.

The Russian leader, as he has the past few years, played with a team known as "Legends" on Friday.

Putin scored at least eight goals in the exhibition game, but some felt the high score was a bit suspect.


Video showed the train missed the red carpet by several inches, making it hard for a ramp to be placed in the right position.

Skating alongside Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Russian hockey greats such as Pavel Bure and Igor Larionov, Putin helped his side to an emphatic 14-7 win in the Night Hockey League.

Putin, whose approval ratings has slipped in recent years as Russian Federation battles economic woes, periodically plays hockey with government officials, businessmen and former National Hockey League stars in matches that are broadcast with pomp on national television.

Putin takes a shot on goal.

He was filmed training on the ice in January with a top-level with Russian Amateur Ice Hockey League team. But he has branded himself as a standout hockey player for years.
