Der var dømt guldregn og vaskeægte russisk sommerregn, da Frankrigs verdensmestre skulle have uddelt deres guldmedaljer efter VM-finalen i Moskva. Se de forrygende billeder af finalens store VIP-personligheder, som blev sjaskvåde af den silende regn på podiet på Luzhniky Stadion i Moskva.

Vladimir Putin blev våd. Frankrigs præsident Emmanuel Macron ligeså. Og også FIFA-præsident Gianni Infantino. Og det samme gjorde Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, som er præsident i Kroatien.

De var alle de meget vigtige VIP'ere, som var udvalgt til at stå på podiet, da den truende grå sommerhimmel over Moskva åbnede sig i minutterne, inden Frankrigs verdensstjerner skulle have deres VM-medaljer om halsen efter 4-2-finalesejren over Kroatien.

Se billederne herunder af våde og glade præsidenter og fodboldsuperstjerner.
