Russia's Putin scores 8 goals in exhibition hockey game

Russian President Vladimir Putin took a fall while waving at the crowds following an ice-hockey game with former NHL players.

Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin is just as powerful on the ice as he is on the political stage, apparently.

Playing centre forward, Putin was provided with plenty of scoring opportunities by his linemates and was met with little resistance by the opposing team's defence.

Putin has scored at least eight goals multiple times in this event, proving just how incredible a 66-year-old sitting president can be when everyone tabbed with the responsibility of defending him is absolutely terrified to even look in his direction.

Dominant Man City will only get better, Pep Guardiola warns rivals
City boss Pep Guardiola celebrated with his players at the end of a remarkable season which saw his side rack up 98 points. We fought as hard as we could and can be proud of the way we played as a team and the amount of points we gained.

Putin played on the "Legends" team in the exhibition match alongside Russian hockey stars such as Slava Fetisov and Pavel Bure.

Whenever Putin straps up the skates and gets on the ice, the world stops as the Russian President dangles around his opponents easily, nearly as if they aren't even trying out of fear of being reprimanded.

Video showed the train missed the red carpet by several inches, making it hard for a ramp to be placed in the right position. His teammate, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, scored three goals.

Putin takes this whole ice hockey thing incredibly seriously. The highlights show some of Putin's goals including one where the goalie clearly raises his pad to let the shot go in despite being in a ideal position to stop it. But he has branded himself as a standout hockey player for years.
