World Cup 2018 came to an end with France defeating Croatia 4-2 in an epic final in Moscow. The thrilling match was no less than a dramatic event, from mind-boggling goals to ‘invaders’ trying to stall the finale.

The footage from the ceremony quickly went viral on social media platforms, with many taking a jibe at Putin.
