When Neeraj Chopra threw that Javelin to win the gold at the Tokyo Olympics, millions of Indians gained a new hero in a matter of seconds. That feeling hasn’t waned yet and it’s not likely to for a long long time.
Case in point, this video of a cute little kid telling Neeraj Chopra that he was their favourite.

Look at the simplicity of this man, interacting with kids at Panipat Sports Stadium today .

And this is the cutest thing ever. And you can tell it from Neeraj’s face. It’s really heartwarming and not the clickbait kind!
Literally, everyone is loving this little interaction the Olympic Gold Medalist just had with the child.
Really Sir 💯❤️😍🙏@Neeraj_chopra1 https://t.co/XhKbOcxIDm— Satya Jaiswal 👑 (@iamsatyajaiswal) October 27, 2021

बिल्कुल सर ज्यादातर शोहरत मिलने पर लोग जमीन से लगाव छोड़ देते है पर हमे अपने @boxervijender ओर @Neeraj_chopra1 जैसे हरियाणा के शेरो पर गर्व है जो इतनी ऊंचाइयों पर पंहुच कर भी उनका व्यक्तित्व और सादगी और निखर कर सामने आई है https://t.co/FHKxwJQlVk— RAVINDER SHARMA (@ravinderdadri) October 27, 2021

The way he responds, the way he cares is not everyone’s cup of tea after getting so much success.
