Putin gives World Cup fans visa-free entry into Russian Federation all year

"MERCI" read Macron's simple tweet after the triumph, which no doubt tasted even better coming on Russian soil after Putin's shenanigans during the 2017 French presidential election.

The women in the background wearing Qatar Airways air stewardess uniforms and Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino were not so lucky however, and still got wet head to toe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday handed over the mantle of World Cup host to the emir of Qatar, whose country will stage the 2022 edition of the tournament.
