WATCH: The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

 
 
 
The world press hailed the opening ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics as a triumph and show of power for Russian President Vladimir Putin seeking to showcase the post-Soviet revival of the former superpower despite an embarrassing technical glitch at the start.
 
The ceremony got off to a shaky start when one of five illuminated snowflakes which were supposed to morph into the Olympic rings failed to appear, leaving an embarrassing set of just four rings.
