Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosted the Indian contingent of Tokyo Olympics 2020 for breakfast on Monday morning. During the meal, PM Modi treated Neeraj Chopra, who won a gold medal at the Games, to some 'churma'.

The prime minister also fulfilled the promise he had made to bronze medallist PV Sindhu before she left for Tokyo.

Sindhu finished third in women's singles badminton at the Tokyo Olympics after beating China's He Bing Jiao in the bronze medal play-off match.

"Bonding over churma! PM Shri Narendra Modi and @Neeraj_chopra1 share a lighter moment," a tweet from 'Mann Ki Baat Updates' handle said.

The Indian men's hockey team, which won a bronze medal at Olympics 2020 to end India's 41-year wait for a medal in the sport, presented the prime minister with an autographed hockey stick.

Wrestlers, including Ravi Dahiya and Bajrang Punia who won silver and bronze medals, respectively, in men's freestyle wrestling, also interacted with PM Modi.

India registered its best Olympic performance at this year's games held in Tokyo. The Indian contingent managed to claim seven medals, including one gold medal.
