Prime Minister Narendra Modi met the Indian athletes who competed in the Olympics and made India proud a day after applauding them from the ramparts of the Red Fort and getting the entire nation to celebrate them.

On Monday, the Indian delegation to the Tokyo Olympics visited Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his official residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg for breakfast. PM Modi also congratulated all Indian athletes on their best-ever performance at the Olympics earlier this month and met with them one-on-one.

'They have not only captured our hearts, but they have also inspired future generations,' Prime Minister Narendra Modi said of the Tokyo Olympics medalists. Vinesh Phogat was also present, as was young Anshu Malik, Seema Bisla, and coach Jagmander Singh, who has been suspended by the WFI for indiscipline. Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu, who opened India's account at the Games with a silver medal on the first day of competitions, and bronze-winning boxer Lovlina Borgohain were among the other medalists.

Along with the boxing, shooting, and athletics contingents, the women's hockey team, which exceeded all expectations by reaching its first Olympic semifinal, was also there. Modi was seen talking to Chopra and bronze medalist PV Sindhu, who became only the second Indian and first woman to win two Olympic medals, after applauding the Indian athletes' outstanding performance during the 75th Independence Day celebrations at the Red Fort on Sunday.

The shutter also carried her silver medal from Rio de Janeiro five years ago. Members of India's men's hockey team, which won bronze after 41 games, also spoke with PM Modi, who was spotted inspecting a hockey stick.
