Russian libero Alexey Verbov stated that everyone knows how good the French players are, but that they have showed their real strength when they came after the game and congratulated Russia on the most original way ever...



The French squad came to the dinner and performed a traditional Russian song Kalinka in honor of their opponents.

“We are all delighted with their gesture!” said Alexey Verbov. “It showed the real strength of France. We were joking with them because they always dance, both off and on the court. It’s their style. Eventually, instead of being sad and angry because of the defeat, they came at the dinner and performed that dance. It was very nice indeed”, concluded Verbov. 

Recall that Russian head coach Vladimir Alekno also congratulated the French team on their tremendous sportsmenship.
