Toronto mayor Rob Ford has said that ice hockey defines Canada, following their success in the sport at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
The controversial politician celebrated the gold-medal match win over Sweden with fans in a sports bar in the city.
The 44-year-old told reporters: "This is what Canada's all about, it's hockey right? When people say how do you define Canada, I say, wait until there's a hockey game."
Canada beat Sweden 3-0 in the final to win back-to-back Olympic titles.
