Sushma... a friend in need ..... - Sakshi Post

Even as India soaked in the silver and bronze glory of PV Sindhu and Sakshi Malik, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was busy helping another sportsperson, who suffered a heart-wrenching injury in her quest for golden glory.
Quietly, Sushma spoke to female wrestler Vinesh Phogat about her ligament injury.

Known for her active use of social media, Sushma Swaraj said on Twitter that she spoke to Vinesh Phogat who suffered a ligament injury.

Vinesh had sustained what seemed to be a serious knee injury during her bout against Sun Yanan of China in the quarter-finals of the women’s Freestyle 48kg category at the Carioca Arena 2 Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday.
After an MRI test, doctors concluded that there was a ligament tear and injury to muscles in the outer part of the knee area and that recovering in such cases is ensured but Vinesh would have to rest and move around in crutches for two weeks.

She also tweeted support to injured Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal.
