Vladimir Putin Hogs Umbrella at World Cup, Leaves Emmanuel Macron in the Rain

Latest news

    Russian president Vladimir Putin arrived onstage at the awards ceremony for the FIFA World Cup with the sole umbrella in the middle of a torrential downpour — leaving French president Emmanuel Macron and Croatian president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović standing in the rain for several minutes until more umbrellas could be found.

    Macron seemed delighted, as Les Bleus had just won their second World Cup. But observers called the umbrella incident a “power move” by the Russian leader, who had a unique opportunity to dominate global attention.

    Putin will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump in Helsinki on Monday.
