India's Deepa Malik today created history by becoming the first-ever woman from the country to win a medal at the Paralympics when she bagged a silver in the shotput F-53 event in Rio.

Deepa's best throw of 4.61m from her six attempts was enough to clinch the silver medal.

Deepa is a paraplegic, paralysed from waist down and mother of two. Life took a twist when a spinal tumour made walking impossible for her 17 years ago.

The spinal tumour had to be operated and 31 surgeries were conducted on Deepa which was healed after 183 stitches between her waist and legs.

Here are the best Twitter reactions to her achievement
