Badminton star PV Sindhu created history becoming the first Indian woman to win two Olympic medals, defeating Bing Jiao in the Bronze medal in Tokyo. Sindhu won 21-13 and 21-15, becoming only the second Indian to win two Olympic individual medals. The stunning achievement was applauded by one and all on Twitter, and cricketers too joined in.
Have a look at some of the reactions.
