People think Vladimir Putin got FIFA official to steal World Cup medal for him

One of the major criticisms of previous World Cups has been the legacy they leave behind, especially in terms of infrastructure, but the former UEFA president feels as though there can only be positives left behind from the summer of 2018.

But Macron saw it coming, laying traps for Russia's troll farm in the form of fake emails and documents.

Mr Putin said all anti-Russia myths had collapsed following the tournament's success.

"Thank you, Russia, for hosting the best World Cup in history".

Earlier Putin was making the most of the much-anticipated World Cup final, cozying up to UFC fighter Conor McGregor.

Russian Federation will extend its visa-free travel regime for foreign soccer fans until the end of 2018, President Vladimir Putin said after the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday. "We will be a welcoming nation", he added.

"We have fallen in love with Russian Federation. Welcome, dear friends", the head of the world governing body said in English, Russian and Arabic. The words, accompanied by a picture of an empty fan zone to mark the end of the tournament, concluded: "Welcome to the real Russia".

France triumphs over Croatia in thrilling final goal-fest
This match saw a nervy France pick up an unconvincing win as Kylian Mbappe scored the goal of the contest. Fans rushed the field during the World Cup Final on Sunday, momentarily stopping play.

The Amir sent a cable to President Putin in which he expressed honest thanks and appreciation for the warm welcome and appreciation accorded to him and the accompanying delegation during the visit which provided the opportunity to meet the president to exchange views on issues of mutual interest, which would contribute to strengthening the friendly relations and cooperation between the two countries in various fields.

Germany came out of its shell, South Africa exceeded expectations and Russian Federation changed negative perceptions when they all hosted the World Cup but just what will unfold in four years' time when the tournament goes to Qatar is anyone's guess.

Still, at least Putin and Federation Internationale de Football Association didn't get things all their own way.

Pussy Riot claimed responsibility for the four pitch invaders who disrupted the final just after Croatia's goalkeeper saved a Kylian Mbappe shot in the 51st minute.

Plus, the president casually dabbed backstage, seen in a video posted to Twitter by French player Benjamin Mendy.

It was a lovely moment for France, who won their first World Cup since 1998, having lost a final 12 years ago to Italy.

Most of all, the football was fantastic.
