Olympic-bound star Indian grappler Bajrang Punia on Monday announced he will be deactivating all his social media accounts until the Games in Tokyo this July-August.
One of India’s biggest medal hopes at the Olympics, Bajrang took to Twitter to announce the decision.
“I will be shutting all my social media handles starting from today. Now I will meet all of you after the Olympics…. I hope you will continue to shower me with your love….. Jai Hind,” he tweeted in Hindi.
Bajrang, who had qualified for the Olympics after earning a quota at the 2019 World Championships, recently returned from USA after attending a one-month training camp at Cliff Keen Wrestling Club in Michigan.
The 27-year-old will be seen in action in the UWW ranking series event—Matteo Pellicone in Italy from Thursday.
