Soccer Football - World Cup - Final - France v Croatia - Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Russia - July 15, 2018 President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic consoles Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic as FIFA president Gianni Infantino, President of Russia Vladimir Putin and President of France Emmanuel Macron look on during the presentation. Kai Pfaffenbach: "Usually a football World Cup is all about the action, goals and emotions on the pitch. This World Cup's final had a lot of that too, but despite the 4-2 result my favourite picture is this. As soon as the victory ceremony started, a heavy downpour began. A helper had an umbrella for Russia President Vladimir Putin quickly on hand, while his counterparts from France and Croatia enjoyed a little shower along with FIFA President Gianni Infantino. France President Emmanuel Macron didn't seem to care and enjoyed himself - and his team's victory - while Croatia President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic comforted her team's coach."
