Russia rule despite France triumph in Pyeongchang
France won the final men's relay World Cup event of the season in Pyeongchang, South Korea, but it wasn't enough to prevent Russia from taking the title.
And third spot on the podium went to the Norwegian team as they finished 45.4 seconds back of France.
Russia were the next team home but while they just missed out on the podium they still did enough to secure the crystal globe despite winning just one of the five races.
The Russians finished the campaign with 259 points, with France just 17 behind in second and Germany – who were sixth in Pyeongchang – third on 237.
