P V Sindhu scripted history by becoming the first Indian shuttler to reach the finals of the women's singles competion at the Rio Olympics as she stunned Japan's Nozomi Okuhara in straight games to assure India of atleast a silver medal.

The two-time bronze medallist at World Championship notched up a sensational 21-19 21-10 victory over the All England Champion from Japan in a pulsating semi-final that lasted 49 minutes.

The World No. 10 from Hyderabad will next take on two-time World Champion and top seed Carolina Marin of Spain in the summit clash on Friday.

And understandably so, Twitter exploded in joy. And what better place to start than Abhinav Bindra, the man Sindhu would hope to emulate by winning gold.

And there were a few tweets taking a dig at Shobhaa De as well. And who was leading the pack? Why, Big B, of course!

Go for gold, girl! India is rooting for you!
