Noted oppressor of gay people, Russian President Vladimir Putin deigned to put his hands on a potential corrupter of children's innocence, openly bisexual Dutch speed skater Ireen Wüst. Wüst won a gold medal on Sunday, making her the first of the seven openly gay or bisexual Olympians competing at Sochi to do. You can watch the historic embrace above.
