ICE HOCKEY - Russia's President Vladimir Putin smiles during a Night Hockey League match in Sochi, in which he showed off his puck-handling skills and scored eight goals -- a display that reinforced his image as a man of action.

Skating alongside Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and Russian hockey greats such as Pavel Bure and Igor Larionov, Putin helped his side to a 14-7 win over a team of former NHL players.

Playing centre forward, Putin was provided with plenty of scoring opportunities by his linemates and was met with little resistance by the opposing team's defence. (Compiled by Shrivathsa Sridhar and Arvind Sriram in Bengaluru, editing by Ed Osmond)
