India made an impressive start to its campaign at the Paralympic Games with Mariyappan Thangavelu creating history by bagging the gold while Varun Bhati won the bronze medal in the men’s T42 high jump on the second day of the mega-event in Rio.

Thangavelu won gold with his best jump of 1.89 metres, while Bhati’s best effort of 1.86m fetched him the bronze – and India, clearly hungry for more medals after the Olympics fetched the country just two, went nuts.

Here are the best reactions on Twitter – including an epic one from Piers Morgan.
