Indians are running riots at Commonwealth Games 2018 and Sathish Sivalingam is the latest to join the bandwagon of gold medallists at the sporting extravaganza. The sturdy weightlifter from Tamil Nadu aced the men’s 77 kg weightlifting category after lifting a total weight of 317 kg. Sivalingam’s gold medal came after Mirabai Chanu and Sanjita Chanu, who also clinched the gold in weightlifting events.
Just after Sathish Sivalingam stood at the top of the podium with his gold medal, Twitter exploded with reactions and one of the familiar faces who is encouraging the Indian contingent relentlessly on the social media platform is Virender Sehwag. Here are some of the top reactions from Twitter:
