batway,The return of Neeraj Chopra from an incredibly successful gold medal-winning campaign at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics saw the javelin thrower being showered with accolades. However, Neeraj too found himself triggering a controversy as he revealed a story involving Pakistan's Arshad Nadeem from the javelin throw final.
The story soon took an ugly turn as Arshad started to receive hate over his handling of Neeraj's javelin right before the latter was to take his first throw. The situation turned so ugly that Neeraj had to take to Twitter to slam those with 'vested interests'. ,uefa live

“Whether the athlete is from Pakistan or any other country, he represents his nation. He is a sportsperson first. So it’s not like we’ll say something against that person because he is from Pakistan. There should be respect for athletes,” wrestler Bajrang was quoted as saying by Indian Express.,bet365 apple watch
Other than hitting out at those trying to giving his statement a political twist for their own interests, Neeraj said that sports is a platform that unites people and it's sad to see people using it for their propaganda.,oddsshark nfl
