Farhan Wants Sushil Kumar To Return Gold Medal. Twitter Disagreed & Trolled Him

Sushil Kumar is one of those few Indian sportspersons who have won a medal in the Olympics for India. In fact, he is a two-time Olympics medallist and now he has returned on the wrestling mat after three years but unfortunately, his come back has attracted controversy too.

On Friday, he won the Wrestling Nationals gold medal in 74kg category but he played just 2 of the 5 matches and in the quarterfinal, semi-final and final, he got walkover.

Winning the gold medal without facing any competition has made many upset including director-actor-singer Farhan Akhtar.

The “Rock On” actor took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to express his opinion. He shared a newspaper cutting with caption, “I hold @WrestlerSushil in high regard for all he has achieved through hard work, discipline, blood and sweat. Sincerely hope he does not accept the gold in this manner. It’s not sportsmanlike.”

Here’s his tweet:

The three wrestlers who gave Sushil walkovers first touched his feet to get his blessings and then gave him walkover as a gesture of respect to the talented wrestler.

There were few who agreed with Farhan on this matter but some were happy with the return of Sushil Kumar and stated that whatever happened on the wrestling mat was as per the rules and norms laid for the game.

Other three wrestlers should be banned:
