Virat Kohli tweeted to congratulate all athletes who participated in the recently-concluded Tokyo Olympics. The Tokyo Games concluded on Sunday with a glittering closing ceremony after more than two weeks of high-octane action.
The Indian contingent signed off from Tokyo Olympics 2020 with its best-ever performance in the history of the games as it bagged 7 medals across various sports. India had only managed to win 2 medals in Rio Olympics. Shrugging off its below-par run in the previous event, the Indian contingent bounced back strongly.
Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra ended the country’s 100-year wait for a medal in athletics and won a gold in India’s final event.
Kohli, who was also set to take the field for the fifth day of the first Test between India and England at Trent Bridge before rain washed out the day’s play, tweeted for India’s Olympians and said:
Congratulations to all our winners and participants at the Olympics. Winning and losing is a part of sport, but what matters is you gave your best for the nation. We are so proud of you and I wish you all the very best going forward. Jai Hind. 🇮🇳🙏#tokyo2020 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/xHkfQVutWg
