Russian President Vladimir Putin took time out of his visit to see British Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday to attend the Olympic judo competition.
Putin headed to the Exhibition Centre London (ExCeL) in a car flying the Russian flag, flanked by a police escort.
The Russian leader is an honorary member of the International Judo Federation, and it is believed to be his favourite sport.
This is his first visit to Britain since he returned to the Kremlin in May and it follows talks with the Prime Minister alongside May's G-20 meeting in Mexico.
Cameron earlier pushed Putin over Russia's refusal to back a tough new United Nations resolution that tries to halt the violence in Syria between regime forces and anti-government rebels.
