Sushil and Narsingh were locked in a bitter legal battle as to who would represent the country in the 74kg category. Narsingh won the quota place while Sushil wanted a trial.

“Bahot Khushi ki baat hain. Mera support pahle bhi thaa, aaj bhi bhain aur kal bhi rahega. (It’s a great news. My support was there earlier also, even today and will remain tomorrow). Go win for me and the country,” the legendary Olympian tweeted.

He also lamented that wrestling in the past few months went through this tumultous phase.

The National Anti-Doping Agency cleared wrestler Narsingh Yadav of doping charges on Monday, accepting his contention that his two positive tests were the result of sabotage.
