Putin takes a tumble after scoring eight goals in ice hockey match

Russian President Vladimir Putin hit the ice in a hockey game in which he scored eight goals, only to take a fall during his victory lap.

The 66-year-old appeared in good spirits after tripping on a red mat laid on the ice and was helped up by his fellow teammates.

Playing centre forward, Putin showed off his puck-handling skills after opening the scoring unassisted by beating the goaltender 2 minutes into the game.

Putin, whose approval ratings have slipped in recent years as Russia battles economic woes, periodically plays hockey with government officials, businessmen and former National Hockey League stars in matches that are broadcast with pomp on national television.
