Leander Paes may have just played his last Olympics with a record seventh straight appearance but Sania Mirza has insisted to never write him off.
"It is very good. He is a great inspiration for all of us. To play one Olympics is a big achievement, it is unbelievable," said Sania.
"I congratulate him but I don't think we should write him off. Everybody thought London 2012 was his last Olympics. Maybe he will be back. He is a great inspiration for all the athletes," she added.
