Russian Federation transfers World Cup hosting duties to Qatar

The French, who won their only World Cup title at home in 1998, will be playing in their third final in 20 years.

Mr Putin's words come after Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianna Infantino showered praise on Russia for hosting the "best World Cup in history".

Neymar dominated plenty of the World Cup build-up with his fight to overcome a foot injury, but it was his feigning of injury that saw him become the butt of many jokes.

While most fans were celebrating France's World Cup victory over Croatia, some eagle-eyed viewers spotted an incredible moment that appeared to show a Federation Internationale de Football Association official pocketing a winners' medal for Vladimir Putin - but is all as it seems? Now, the picture of young president's celebration is going viral on social media pages.

After the final whistle, Macron found himself on the pitch at the Luzhniki Stadium without an umbrella during a fierce downpour that started during the trophy presentation - unlike Putin who was sheltered by an aide.

Then, as Macron and Grabar-Kitarovic walked toward the tunnel to leave the field, his heels were nearly clipped by some exuberant France players who were sliding on their bellies and their behinds across the soaked grass toward a bank of photographers beside a group of state presidents.

Fatal shooting body-cam released in bid to stop more protests
Officials said three or four officers suffered minor injuries and one patrol auto was damaged, and four protestors were arrested. Guglielmi said the crowd was incited by false reports, including that the man was unarmed or had a concealed carry permit.

Mendy managed to get Macron to join in on the celebratory dances too, as the pair dabbed alongside Paul Pogba.

The Manchester United midfielder and his teammate had chose to teach Macron how to dab.

French President Emmanuel Macron was on his feet celebrating at fulltime.

He almost broke the internet when he hogged the sole umbrella as rain lashed down on France president Emmanuel Macron and Croatia president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic beside him, who also took to the stage in the centre of the pitch.

She was even spotted sharing light moments with her French counterpart on the podium, minutes after the Croatian national team's disappointing defeat.
