'Awesome experiencing the glorious history of the Olympic Games.'

It was a proud moment for Bollywood star Ranveer Singh as he visited the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he saw MC Mary Kom's boxing gloves and Dhyan Chand Singh's hockey stick displayed among the memorabilia of other world renowned athletes.

Mary Kom won the bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London while hockey legend Dhyan Chand was part of three gold medal-winning squads in 1928, 1932 and 1936.

'Faster. Higher. Stronger. Awesome experiencing the glorious history of the Olympic Games. The best part? @marykomofficial's boxing gloves and Dhyan Chand's hockey stick!' Ranveer posted on Instagram.

Check out Ranveer's visit to the Olympic museum:
