It wasn't a good day for Billiards player and Arjuna Awardee, Pankaj Advani, who got trolled after posting a tweet congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi for being declared the best Prime Minister in the world.

A lot of people fell for the hoax after a WhatsApp message declaring that UNESCO had declared Modi as the best PM of the world, went viral.

'Nationalists' took no time in exchanging congratulatory messages on Twitter, beaming with pride on the international validation!


Internet trolls were quick to mock the enthusiastic nationalists!

It was just the hoax that was in news, until, India's most successful cueist Pankaj Advani also fell for it, and naively tweeted this:

And the internet showed no mercy. A parody account of Chetan Bhagat also trolled Advani!

But the young player, who is a 15-time World Billiards and Snooker Champion, had a best comeback for everyone who called him out for his tweet.

Come on, people. Spare the guy. Where are we when he's winning laurels for our country?
