Featuring Modric, the Croatian skipper who won the Golden Ball, the cartoon portrayed the star player with the trophy. But stealing the show was Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic presenting him not just the trophy but sandwich!

With a tagline, “Sanduic for Modric”, they added “have a ball with this gold” in a brilliant wordplay.

President Kitarovic won many hearts around the globe ever since she attended the first match by travelling in economy class on a flight and cheering for the team from regular stands. Netizens went gaga over her warm hugs to players of both the teams during the presentation ceremony.
