India’s Neeraj Chopra scripted history by winning the country’s first gold at the Olympics in athletics by winning the men’s javelin throw final with a best throw of 87.58m. Neeraj, on his Olympic debut, completely decimated the field with a stunning performance in the final. With Neeraj’s historic performance in Tokyo, India registered their most successful campaign at the Olympics. After his historic performance, fans on Twitter went hysteric. Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar led wishes on Twitter. Tendulkar wrote “India shines better today because of you, Neeraj.”

Former cricketer RP Singh called Neeraj a legend while praising only the second Indian to win an individual Olympic gold. Abhinav Bindra was the only Indian before Neeraj.

Yuvraj Singh was full of praise for Neeraj and said the country salutes you.

Boxing legend Mary Kom also heaped praise on Neeraj Chopra on Twitter.

Here are the other reactions on Twitter:

Neeraj had started the men’s javelin throw final with a throw of 87.03 to take the lead. Neeraj bettered his own attempt by registering a distance of 87.58m in his second attempt. Czech Republic’s Jakub Vadlejch won the silver medal with a best throw of 86.67m. His countryman Vitezslav Vesely took home bronze with a best throw of 85.44m.
