Lewis Hamilton Sprays Vladimir Putin With Champagne At Russian Grand Prix

Winning a Grand Prix must be a joyfully heady feeling but is even that an excuse to take your life in your hands and drench Vladimir Putin with Champagne?

Well, just ask Lewis Hamilton - assuming he's still alive this morning.

Hamilton's immediate response was to turn his bottle of Champagne on the notoriously shady leader and shower him with fizz.

Cue immediate internet murmuring predicting his imminent demise...
