The Sochi bear has had a busy few weeks posing for pictures and scaring fans. And now he’s sad to say goodbye.

At the end of the closing ceremony of the Sochi Winter Games the three mascots appeared on stage and waved goodbye to the crowds. 

The bear was front and center as he blew out the Olympic flame on stage.
