Saina Nehwal is not only an outstanding badminton player but also a former No.1. Things did not quite go her way this Olympics when a 61st-ranked Maria Ulitina of Ukraine defeated her in her second match. This heartbreaking defeat was definitely linked to the knee injury that got her admitted to a hospital in Hyderabad upon her return from Rio.

Yesterday, India discovered another badminton superstar in PV Sindhu who defeated Japan's Nozomi Ukuhara to enter the badminton finals, assuring at least a silver for herself and her country. Sindhu, of course, is focused on her gold quest.

So, the celebratory wave set in motion by Sakshi Malik a day earlier was only getting bigger. Twitter exploded as wishes poured in for Sindhu. In the middle of all the good cheer though, a self-proclaimed fan of Saina Nehwal decided to troll her.

He said:

But true sport that Saina is, she had a dignified reply for him. She said:

Thankfully, that was enough for the troll to see the error of his ways. He replied:

Nehwal, obviously, let it go:

However, a lot of her fans did not.

And Nehwal garnered a lot of support. As for the fan, he profusely apologised for that tweet to a lot of people.
