Ace India javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra is not only winning pauldits for his exploits on the track, but off it too, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games gold medallist is winning hearts.

In a video doing the rounds on social media, the star athlete can be seen signing autographs and taking selfies with fans in Stockholm, Sweden following podium finish in Diamond League 2022.

As Chopra is about to leave, he thanks all the fans and then when an elderly man wishes him, he goes and takes his blessings, leaving everyone in awe.

Earlier, Chopra broke the national record again with a throw of 89.94m. He fell just six centimetres short of the elusive 90m mark but he bettered his personal best of 89.30m, set earlier this month at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Finland.
