These days badminton has turned out to be the most followed sport in India, and for this a lot of credit goes to the Rio Olympic silver medalist PV Sindhu and her rivalry with Spanish no 1 Carolina Marin. The duo were battled against each other for a gold medal in women’s singles final at the Rio Olympics 2016. But off the court, they are ‘Good friends’. Yes! recently, Marin posted a picture with Sindhu from the ongoing Premier Badminton League (PBL) on her social media account.
Marin posted a selfie with Sindhu and it again proves the fact that their rivalry stays on the court, and one thing that matters is the friendship that develops off the court. The former World No. 1 captioned the selfies as, “It’s much more than just badminton @Pvsindhu1.” However, men’s singles shuttler HS Prannoy took this as an opportunity to troll the former World No 1. With laughing emojis, he asked her to share the selfie they had taken.
Check out few of the fans tweets.
Meanwhile, both currently are part of PBL season 3. Marin features as a part of Hyderabad Hunters, while Sindhu leads her side Chennai Smashers. On this occasion, Marin’s post with PV Sindhu attracted a massive inflow of comments praising the Spaniard for her gesture that erased all questions of their rivalry off the court.
