The Croatian President did not notice the shower at the closing ceremony of the 2018 world Cup
The President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic told “Kommersant” that did not upset over the lack of umbrella at the ceremony of awarding the finalists of the world Cup. “I feel like I didn’t even notice that it was raining — until it ended. My hair and how I looked — all of this for me at the time didn’t matter, I was only thinking about the players,” admitted the President in an interview to “Kommersant”.
In the conversation the President said that even cried during the ceremony. “When I saw Luka Modric, who was walking to me with his award for best player of the championship… In his eyes I realized he’d give anything to replay everything and go now with another Cup… And I just couldn’t not to cry for him and for the team,” she said.
