Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacts with India’s Tokyo-bound athletes on Tuesday ahead of the Olympic Games, which are finally set to get underway this month after a year’s delay. PM Modi had taken stock of India’s Olympic preparations on Friday. “Reviewed preparations for facilitation of India’s contingent at @Tokyo2020. Discussed the logistical details, their vaccination status, the multi-disciplinary support being given,” he had written. India will be sending 126 athletes across 18 sports disciplines to Tokyo, which is the largest-ever Indian contingent at any Olympics.

Here are the highlights from his interaction with the athletes:
