With just 10 days to go for the Tokyo Olympics, Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to personally interact with some of the biggest medal hopefuls from the Indian contingent and wish them well for the upcoming Summer games starting July 23.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised to have ice cream with PV Sindhu once she returns from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics next month. The PM told Sindhu about his post-Games plan during a video interaction with Tokyo-bound Indian athletes on Tuesday.
Sindhu had revealed in an interview with India Today that her coach Pullela Gopichand took away her mobile phone and also prohibited her from eating ice cream during the 2016 Rio Olympics.
All of her preparations bore fruit when she became the first badminton player from India to clinch a silver medal at the Games in Brazil.
PM Modi also saw that interview and remembered what Sindhu spoke about her diet. He then vowed to have ice cream with the badminton world champion once she comes back from Japan.
“Sindhu Ji your parents have made a lot of sacrifices to help you reach where you are at the moment. They have done their job, now it is your turn to show what you are made of.
“Work hard and I am confident that you will be successful once again. And when you all come back from the Olympics, I will have ice cream with you,” PM Modi said before bursting into laughter.
