Game of Thrones: Night King prepares for Battle of Winterfell with trip to Lokomotiv Moscow

With the White Walkers assembling outside Winterfell in the second episode of Game of Thrones season eight, it was noticeable that their feared leader, the Night King, was mysteriously absent.

Turns out, ahead of this week's big battle, he'd popped over to Moscow to take in FC Lokomotiv's Russian Premier League game against Yenisei Krasnoyarsk.

Quite honestly, the King looked more than a little bored as Lokomotiv secured a 2-1 victory that propelled them up into second place in the table.

Perhaps he had other things on his mind, like a savage and bloody skirmish in the quest to bring eternal darkness to the realm of man.
