Sushma Swaraj tells injured wrestler Vinesh Phogat

NEW DELHI: While the entire country was busy celebrating Sakshi Malik's herculean effort at the Olympics, Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi's compatriot, was hurting both physically and mentally.

Vinesh had to exit the Games, following a ligament tear in her right leg while she was competing with China's Sun Yanan on Wednesday. External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, well known for her social media presence, was quick to offer words of comfort to Vinesh. "Vinesh - You are our daughter. India in Brazil is your family. Ask for anything you require," Swaraj tweeted.
