Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic won everyone’s heart at the FIFA World Cup 2018 Final between Croatia and France.
Though, being a President she flew economy class to Russia and watched the match with fans till recognised. She was then offered a seat in the VIP Box. She was unhappy though as she was not allowed to wear the team T-SHIRT in the VIP area. Isn’t that a perfect example of the level to which a citizen loves its nation.
In her words, she said – “I wanted to showcase that I am a football fan, like everyone else; I wanted to support the team among other fans in the stands. I put on a shirt with national symbols, whereas the dress code in the VIP zone, which usually presupposes long gowns, wouldn’t have permitted such an outfit.”
During the presentation ceremony today, even though Croatia lost to France by 4:2, it was so much fun to watch Ms. Kolinda hugging and greeting every player of her nation and the opposite team players with grace.
She is a perfect blend of beauty blessed with a beautiful heart.
