Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated and hailed the Indian contingent despite their dismal performance at Rio Olympics 2016. PM Modi has been encouraging the Indian athletes since the beginning Rio games. After Rio Olympics closing ceremony, he took it to Twitter on Monday and congratulated all the athletes who took part in the games.

PM Modi had last week congratulated PV Sindhu for winning the Silver medal in Rio Olympics, and had called her accomplishment historic. The PM had met the Indian athletes before the start of Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and had wished them luck.

“Spectacular #ClosingCeremony for #Rio2016. I congratulate all athletes who took part in the games. @Olympics,” PM Modi wrote on Twitter.

“Want to specially wish the Indian contingent at #Rio2016. Every athlete gave his or her best,” he tweeted.

“Special gratitude to the host nation, Brazil for hosting people from across the world & organising a memorable #OlympicGames.”
