New Delhi: Ebela, a Bengali website stooped to a new low when it objectified women’s badminton Olympic gold-medallist Carolina Marin, who defeated PV Sindhu in the finals, and posted her bikini-clad pictures on their website.

The 23-year-old Spanish badminton star had broken a billion Indian hearts when she beat India’s PV Sindhu to clinch the gold in the Olympic finals in women’s singles in badminton on Friday.
