World Cup 2018: Croatian President’s Cuddles Deemed Excessive in the Final

Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the President of Croatia, was one of the main attractions of the media and photographers during the final of the 2018 Russia World Cup, which was held on Sunday, July 15th.

Le Figaro points to Kolinda Kitarović’s hugs on French President Emmanuel Macron, the players of both teams, and their respective technical staff at the end of the match. The sweetness and deep concern with which the Croatian President congratulated the actors, raised serious questions.

Kolinda Kitarović clearly did not take into account protocol principles and her status as president of the republic. She let herself go by offering some hugs considered excessive.

For our colleagues from Le Figaro, the Croatian President has been exemplary in comforting the Croatian players and all the technical staff with great hugs. In the same way, she congratulated the French players by also offering them big hugs. The most notable cases are those offered to Luka Modric, Kylian Mbappé, or Croatian coach Zlatko Dalić.

However, it is Emmanuel Macron who has most tasted the embraces of the Croatian President. In the presidential stands during the match, in the field for the presentation of the cup, with his jacket, without a jacket, in the pouring rain … At any time, the first woman to lead Croatia was in the arms of Emmanuel Macron and a few in those of Brigitte.
