FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) President Donald Trump has a Super Bowl ring – just like Vladimir Putin.

The New England Patriots said Tuesday that owner Robert Kraft gave the diamond-encrusted ring to Trump. The sitting president usually receives gifts from teams during celebratory White House visits. A personalized jersey is standard, but Kraft gave Trump a ring as well.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment.
