After World Cup 2018 finale concluded with France defeating Croatia 4-2, the award presentation ceremony saw the presence of world leaders and top officials including the host country Russia’s president Vladimir Putin.
Alongside him were FIFA President Gianni Infantino, France President Emmanuel Macron and Croatia President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
The ceremony was a dreamy affair and an emotional one too as even heavy rains could not stop the dignitaries from stepping out in the open.
While Macron and Kolinda were inadvertent to the fact that they got drenched, the Russian President clearly stood out, with an official holding an umbrella over his head.
Twitterati were quick to spot President Putin, following which, they trolled him on the micro-blogging site.
