Femi of the Nigerian Soccer team hugs a Russian player after Nigeria wins the gold medal in a 5-3 over Russia at the Special Olympics World Games in Lake Balboa California. The Russian coach had no sense of sportsmanship, she sulked and refused to take pictures with the Nigerian team when they ran over to the Russian bench to shake hands with the Russian team. She just sat in one corner and sulked, refusing to talk to anyone including the game officials. Seems to me she has a lot to learn from the kids she is coaching. – @OgbeniAyotunde
