All England Championships final; PM Modi hails shuttler Lakshya Sen

Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed shuttler Lakshya Sen for putting up a spirited fight after he lost the final of the All England Championships and expressed confidence that he would keep scaling new heights of success.

Sen lost All England Championships ended with a heartbreaking straight-game loss against world number one and Olympic champion Viktor Axelsen in the men’s singles final on Sunday, continuing India’s 21-year-long agonising wait for the coveted trophy.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also hailed Sen’s performance. After four days of sensational badminton, the 20-year-old Sen faltered on the cusp of history as he committed too many errors to go down 10-21 15-21 to former champion Axelsen in the summit clash.
