PV Sindhu sent India into a frenzy by reaching the final of the women’s badminton singles.
Now with silver assured, and gold in her sights, the 21-year-old will take on world No 1 Carolina Marin of Spain at 6:55 PM (IST). Sindhu has already secured India’s second ever badminton medal and could become the first woman from the country to strike gold.
History beckons, and fellow Indian sportspersons turned to Twitter to wish Sindhu luck.
