“Go ahead and pinch me” – President Putin of Russia, tells a bemused Nigerian student


“Go ahead and pinch me” – President Putin of Russia, tells a bemused Nigerian student

Vladimir Putin asked a student to pinch him after a young man from Nigeria said he couldn’t believe that the Russian president was really standing in front of him, during an informal meeting at the 19th World Festival of Youth and Students in Sochi.

Putin’s arrival at the Olympic Park in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi late on Thursday came as a surprise for guests at the festival. “I’m so overwhelmed. I can’t believe I’m standing in front of the Russian president,” the awestruck Nigerian student, Edostrey, said.

But Putin was quick to come up with a way of dispelling his doubts, telling the young man: “Go ahead and pinch me.” Edostrey appeared reluctant to accept the offer, with the Russian president instead pinching the student himself, much to the amusement of the assembled crowd.
