Putin: I did not steal Super Bowl ring

The Russian president is fighting back: no, he did not steal a Super Bowl ring. And no, he's not rocking the diamond-encrusted prize on his finger, either.

President  Vladmir Putin's spokesman denied accusations that the president pocketed a Super Bowl ring that belonged to the New England Patriots' owner, Robert Kraft.

"I took out the ring and showed it to (Putin). And he put it on and he goes, 'I can kill someone with this ring,'" Kraft said, according to Bleacher Report. "I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out."
