Although his love for yoga is very well known, what Indian netizens were perhaps not expecting was for the PM to accept Virat Kohli's fitness challenge. "Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon," he tweeted.
This was in response to the nomination by Virat Kohli on a #FitnessChallenge. The 29-year-old cricketer who was in turn challenged by Olympic medallist Rajyavardhan Rathore had posted a video of doing his favourite core workout - planks - effortlessly and challenged PM Modi, wife Anushka Sharma and fellow cricketer MS Dhoni to take the challenge.
