Vladimir Putin's face will resemble this after Russia Olympic hockey exit

Published Add your comment

You can only imagine how Vladimir Putin is feeling after Russia were knocked out in the quarter-finals of the Men's Ice Hockey tournament at the Sochi Olympics today. 

His face bound to look something a little like the photo above in which Putin looks visibly sad in picture that's a few days old

It seems the Russian President is not enjoying his $50 billion Sochi experience, as he was caught on camera early last week looking pretty depressed alongside a Canadian fan. 

It probably won't be long before we see an upset version of his face as he contemplates the letdown of his Russian Men's hockey team.

To be fair the Finland team that beat Russia convincingly today is the only nation to have picked up medals at every turn since the NHL started sending players to the Olympics in 2014. 

43-year-old Teemu Selanne set the tone with an early goal, and Finland were also helped by 37 epic saves from their goaltender Tuukka Rask, as they won 3-1. 

Finland are yet to win a gold medal in the Men's hockey, but if they continue to keep going deep in the tournament they might eventually break their duck. 

As for Russia it's game over, as in front of their passionate home fans they crumbled to continue their 22 year drought without winning a gold.
