PV Sindhu brings a whole of lot to cheer for on Sunday to Indian fans. At the world championship in Switzerland, she defeated Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 21-7, 21-7 becoming the first Indian to win the coveted title.

Prime minister Narendra Modi and Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan were among those who praised her historic achievement.

PV Sindhu earned a silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and another at the Asian Games two years later.

Congratulatory messages were over-flown the Twitter celebrating her victory.

In a traditionally cricket-dominated country, Sindhu has come a long way as a badminton player.

On Sunday, Sindhu was dominating the match in Basel and won the first game in just 16 minutes. Sindhu lost two consecutive finals of the championship in 2017 and 2018, but earned the gold on Sunday with a mix of brute power, patience and strategy.
