Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday met ace shuttler PV Sindhu, two days after she won a historic gold at BWF World Championships in Basel, Switzerland.

Calling her India’s pride, PM Modi tweeted photos of himself with Sindhu in which he was seen presenting her the gold medal she won in the World Championships.

The passion and dedication with which she’s pursued badminton is inspiring. PV Sindhu’s success will inspire generations of players,” he had said in a tweet.
