Russian President Vladimir Putin Takes a Tumble on the Ice

Playing Russian Leader Vladimir Putin Falls on Face After Hockey Match

It was the fall of Vladimir Putin — at least on the ice.

After an exhibition hockey game in Sochi featuring former NHL players, Putin was taking a victory lab around the rink when he ate ice.

Video of the embarrassing moment shows Putin seeming to trip on a carpet on the ice. 

But thanks to some help from his comrades, Putin was back on his skates in no time and continued waving around the rink.

Putin may have scored eight goals during the game, but will this be the moment everyone remembers instead?
