Putins umbrella hogs all limelight at FIFA WC presentation

AP Interview Croatian leader says Trump Putin key to peace

The current Les Bleus squad became legends on Sunday when they beat Croatia 4-2 in an epic World Cup final at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. One instance required riot police to be called to the Nike store on Champs Elysee-a major street in Paris.

Qatar's rulers, however, say they will rise to the challenge, with hours to go until the final between France and Croatia that will bring down the curtain on Russia's hosting of this year's tournament. The violence that ultimately ensued forced the store to push back the official release of the product to Tuesday.

It first started with the quarter-final win over Russian Federation.

Tens of thousands of people poured into the streets of Croatia's capital Zagreb to stage a hero's welcome for their national football team.

Show me someone who has hugged more people in the last 48 hours than Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and I will show you a liar.

Putin was the only leader on the podium who used an umbrella to keep himself dry.

Penalty shoot-out victories over Denmark and Russian Federation followed in the last 16 and quarter-finals, respectively, before a 2-1 win against England in extra-time saw them reach their first ever World Cup final.

Another moment that had the biggest share of amusing comments, was during the final ceremony when world leaders were greeting the French and Croatian players and it started to rain heavily.

Grabar Kitarovic displayed great passion throughout the tournament, following the team in all the games after the group stage but missing the semi-final against England due to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

According to their website, "The first FIFA World Cup opened at the brand-new Estadio Centenario in Montevideo on 18 July, 1930".

"They are completely insane, those lads", said a grinning, wet Deschamps after the players had left.
