Wasn’t the right time to be diplomatic.

The attention of the football fans during the 2018 World Cup wasn’t drawn to the actual matches. A charming and influential woman in the stands won the audience’s hearts.

The president of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, whose national team advanced to the World Cup for the first time in history, impressed thousands of football fans with her gesture.

The 50-years-old politician went real during the tournament. Instead of watching the match from the VIP lounge, she wore the uniform of the Croatian national team and enjoyed the game like an ordinary viewer. Ms. Kolinda revealed:

“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.”
