Neeraj Chopra is flying high and achieving some ground-breaking records in the Javelin throw. But India’s first Olympics gold medal winner has not only aced the sport but also won hearts for his humbleness.
Recently, during a tournament, a video of him went viral where we see him touching the feet of an elderly person and taking his blessings.
The video was shared by a Twitter user, Ijnani, and has gathered more than 30k views and 2k likes. The champion is seen meeting a few of his fans and clicking pictures. While people wish him luck, Neeraj takes blessings from an elder person standing there.
People on Twitter are impressed by this heartwarming gesture and are lauding Neeraj Chopra for being so grounded.
Love how he’s letting it fly while being grounded. Respect! https://t.co/Ajk3rNfwW9— Hemang Shah (@hemangjshah) July 1, 2022

Neeraj is like the sport he plays— Prithvi (@Eighty7_Fifty8) July 1, 2022
However high he reaches in terms of name & fame, at the end of day, he is down to earth leaving big marks behind just like the Javelin!
True role model 👑 https://t.co/f8kmlmc12p
It's been 10 months since he shot to fame. He's still the old sweet humble Haryanvi lad.— The Honorable Judge Arthur Vandelay presiding (@Art__Van_delay) July 1, 2022
PS: All Haryanvis are really humble once you are able to look past their accent. https://t.co/MojJfpW3fa
