New Delhi, Aug 30: Indian wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt's London Olympics 2012 bronze medal has been upgraded to silver on Tuesday (Aug 30) after Russain Besik Kudukhov tested positive for a banned substance.
('My London Olympics bronze medal has been upgraded to silver')
Yogeshwar, who failed to perform in this year's Rio Olympics, had clinched bronze in men's 60kg freestyle in London Games 4 years ago. Now, with the original silver medallist Kudukhov failing a dope test, Yogeshwar receives silver.
This surprise development gave an opportunity to former India cricketer Virender Sehwag to share his thoughts in the most funny way. (Yogeshwar says sorry)
The Nawab of Najafgarh who is famous for his humour and wit on the social media expressed that he's quite amazed with the upgradations taking place around him.
Sehwag took to his Twitter handle on Tuesday to write, "Wah !Cricket upgraded in US, NehraJi upgraded to smartphone and now #YogeshwarDutt 's 2012 bronze likely to be upgraded to silver. #Upgrade".
Indian cricket team recently concluded their maiden tour to the USA where Men In Blue played matches against current T20 champions West Indies. It was the first occasion when Team India played an international match on American soil after winning Test series against West Indies in the Carribean.
Veteran India pacer Ashish Nehra, while talking to media persons earlier this year, shocked everyone by saying that he doesn't possess a smartphone. Sehwag through his tweet conveyed that Nehra has now bought a new smartphone.
