In an interview with US filmmaker Oliver Stone in 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is now 65, acknowledged that he had begun to learn to skate at the age of 60 so he could play hockey.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has jokingly suggested that he may become a professional hockey player after his presidential term ends.

At the same time, he admitted that he is "not exactly a puckster" because he is currently engaged in other work.

Putin's remarks came after one of the present deceived real estate investors turned to him for help during the meeting, pledging that he will always give Putin the puck so that he can score his "good goal".

"I could not stand on skates at all. I just could not stand. In general, it is always interesting to do something new," Putin noted.
