Indian wrestler Vinesh Phogat, who recently underwent an elbow surgery, on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with her family. 

A strong medal contender at the Tokyo Games, the 27-year-old had made a shock first-round exit from the Olympics.

 

The former world championship bronze-medallist was part of meetings that Modi had with Tokyo Games athletes both before and after the Olympics.

"Great meeting the honourable @narendramodi sir today. His enthusiasm and love for sport is truly boundless. Genuinely touched by your concern for athletes. A big thank you sir for sparing time from your busy schedule to fulfil your promise of interacting with me and my family," Vinesh tweeted alongside a photograph.

Vinesh had left the recent World Championship trials mid-way, complaining of weakness.
