A video shows Les Bleus ecstatically celebrating their victory over Croatia in the FIFA World Cup final by performing several impromptu chants. One of them is about Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
Overjoyed French footballers can be seen jumping on a table in their locker room, singing songs and chants that are typically shouted at stadiums.
Since they had special guests present in the room, the new reigning world champions apparently decided to dedicate a unique chant to each of them, including Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, whose country was hosting the tournament. Putin received the tribute with a smile and applause.
Among the others to get their own chants were French President Emmanuel Macron, Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, and the head of FIFA Gianni Infantino.
France beat Croatia 4-2 on Sunday, becoming the world champions for the second time following their inaugural victory in 1998.
