Vladimir Putin plays keep-ups to mark 100 days until 2018 World Cup

With just 100 days to go until the World Cup kicks off in Moscow, FIFA produced a special video that featured a raft of footballing faces performing a sequence of 100 kick-ups.

The likes of Wayne Rooney, Diego Maradona and Carlos Valderrama juggled their way through the first 90 only for Russian President Vladimir Putin to add the finishing touches -- with a little help from FIFA supremo Gianni Infantino.

Some impressive skills on show, not least from Putin, who more than held his own among a raft of some of football's biggest names.

However, the less said about Thomas Brolin's break-dancing, the better.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
