The 58-year-old Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has put his skates on and joined junior ice hockey player’s team called “White Bears” at a training session in the Russian capital, Moscow. He was wearing a red uniform with his name on the back and a red helmet.
Vladimir Putin claims that he only started learning how to skate two months ago and also confessed he did try skating when he was a boy. After showing off his skill in the rink he said “It’s an exciting and energetic sport. It reminds me of mountain skiing, it’s less traumatic than soccer.”
