Putin on ice: Russian President shows off hockey skills
Putin was at it again, reminding the world of a skill
It seems Russian President Vladimir Putin likes to remind the world of his ‘tough guy’ image every now and then.
Putin hit the ice rink participating in an all-star ice hockey game in Sochi on Tuesday – scoring once and giving two trick passes – and generally showing off his skills with the puck.
Donning a red and blue jersey with the number 11 on the back, Putin led a team of officials, businessmen and former players to a 9-5 victory over a group of amateur hockey players.
At the end of the match, the Russian President was handed a trophy by former Soviet Union hockey star Alexander Yakushev.
The Russian President is a judo black belt and has often shown off his sporting prowess. He has been seen on TV exercising, riding a horse, diving in the Black Sea and flying a hang glider.
