Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Universiade's Main Operation Center in Krasnoyarsk on Sunday, to check on the work progress during the second day of the biggest student and youth sports event in Russia.

Talking to Universiade's main Operation Center employees, the Russian leader made a joke about possible changes to the competition schedule, saying "I don't mean changing the results, just the organisation structure."

Putin then met with the Russian team and congratulated the Universiade participants at the start of the sports event. "You all are going to show us outstanding results and bright victories, we all and yourself will be proud of it."
