    This furry fan could bear-ly hold it together after Russia's Sochi shocker in men's hockey.

    Olympic mascot Polar Bear Bely Mishka, who has taught the uninitiated the Macarena and found himself in tight situations, was caught on camera in a not-so-jubilating moment following Russia's elimination from the Games.

    In a photo posted on the Sochi 2014 Twitter account, the usually cheerful bear looked in need of a cuddle over the home country's loss.

    Russia's hockey team fell to Finland 3-1 Wednesday in the quarterfinals, ending the nation's bid for gold in the marquee Winter Olympic sport. The letdown also quashed the chance at a hoped-for "Miracle on Ice" re-match against the U.S.
