After Sakshi Malik gave us the much-needed medal yesterday, PV Sindhu took the baton forward today and gave us one more medal to rejoice in what has been an underwhelming Olympics for India. As always, the Twitterati hailed the new superstar of badminton, and here are the best ones.
What a smash to finish the match
Out of Saina's shadows; the new superstar in Indian badminton
That's the benefit of having a school of players, if one fails nxt takes charge. Saina was injured, so Sindhu took charge. Thanku Gopichand.— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) August 18, 2016

If there was any minimum age for coaches, Gopichand would have been barred considering he is still looks only 20 ! #Rio2016— The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) August 18, 2016
The reason for Jadeja's absence today
No Indian victory can be complete without the Pakistan joke
Eating your own words, huh
Don't be surprised if you see Shobha De put on weight by the time Olympics get over. Eating your own words is a high calorie diet.#Rio2016— The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) August 18, 2016
