Rami's awkward meet with Kolinda

Adil Rami has revealed that he made a rather embarrassing faux-pas while attempting small talk with the president of Croatia in the aftermath of the 2018 World Cup final. Rami and France emerged victorious over Croatia but, perhaps intoxicated by a potent cocktail of sporting triumph and inhaled dry ice fumes, the centre-half ended up cramming his entire size 10 boot into his mouth while attempting light chit-chat with Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic. Here is Rami's first-hand account of the cringe-inducing conversation: "After the World Cup final, the president of Croatia looked at me and said 'nice moustache'. And I told her: 'I love Mykonos'. I don't know why but I've always confused Greece and Croatia. She said 'thank you' and she left. Then, Olivier looks at me and says: 'Are you stupid? Mykonos is Greece.' I told him: 'Oh god, I don't know anymore. It's okay, I'm world champion!'"
