During this, he asked such questions to some players, which have become a topic of discussion. Modi shared an old anecdote related to ice cream of star badminton player PV Sindhu. Also, the PM expressed his desire to eat ice cream with Sindhu after winning the Olympics. Now people are trying to know what is Sindhu’s ice cream story. Let us tell you about this.
PM asked this to PV Sindhu
At the beginning of the discussion, the PM asked PV Sindhu about his practice. After this Modi said, “I remember that Gopichand ji said in an interview that he had taken your phone before the Rio Olympics. You were not allowed to eat ice cream. Are you still banned from eating ice cream? Got it or got some discount?”
Know what Sindhu replied
PV Sindhu smiled and replied that, “Still I control about it. Diet is very important for an athlete. Now is the Olympics, I will control diet for this, but I do not eat ice cream that much. Just sometimes I eat.” To this Modi said, “I am sure you will definitely be successful this time too. If I have to meet after success, I will also eat ice cream with you.”
What is the full story of ice cream
In fact, a few months before the Rio Olympics 2016, PV Sindhu’s coach Pullela Gopichand had banned her from eating ice cream. It was about Sindhu’s fitness. Along with this, he had also taken Sindhu’s phone. When Sindhu came back after winning a silver medal at the Rio Olympics, Gopichand said that Sindhu can now eat ice cream. This disclosure of Gopichand was in the headlines even then.
