Has any country won a World team championship in any sport when ruled by a dictator

So the conditions to be met are as follows

Has to be a world cup sport
A team sport
Held every 2,3 or 4 years as most of them do
Can be a Olympics games
The country should have been ruled by 1 or more dictators between the tournament years or more.

I cannot think of any of the top of my head. I am veering towards Tito, Mussolini and other such years. Most other dictators probably ruled poor countries with no sporting achievements.

Surprise me.
