Croatia's President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic stole hearts at the FIFA World Cup and the effervescent leader was again seen cheering as Marin Cilic sealed a second Davis Cup title for the Balkan nation by beating France's Lucas Pouille on Sunday.

Renowned for supporting her country at major sporting events, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic was seen decked out in the red-and-white of the team's flag courtside.


After winning Grabar-Kitarovic, warmly hugged Cilic just as she had hugged play-maker Luka Mordic.

Croatia will enter the history books as winners of the last final played in the traditional format before the 118-year-old team competition gets a major revamp.

Grabar-Kitarovic was cheering on - just as she was during the soccer World Cup final. Take a look...
