The Week contest: Sports tyrant
This week's question: Russian President Vladimir Putin scored a remarkable eight goals in an exhibition ice hockey match, after defenders mysteriously skated out the way of the 66-year-old autocrat whenever he approached the net. If Hollywood were to make a movie about a tyrant who becomes a true sports star, what title could it give the film?
