New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday met Indian badminton champions, who are back in the country after stellar performances in Thomas Cup and Uber Cup.

During the brief "Q&A" interaction, days after the Indian team scripted history by winning its first Thomas Cup crown, the players discussed the different aspects of their game and their lives outside the court, PM Modi said in a tweet.

"Interacted with our badminton champions, who shared their experiences from the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup. The players talked about different aspects of their game, life beyond badminton and more. India is proud of their accomplishments," the PM's tweet read.

Speaking about the interaction, Kidambi Srikanth said, "PM took so much time out of his busy schedule to meet us. He also called us immediately after the final, and also spoke to us, and congratulated us. These kinds of things definitely help all the players to do well. This is something that is unmatchable".

"PM follows the players and the sport, and his thoughts connect with the players," P Gopichand told the media as he shared his experience of meeting PM Modi.

"I've been a player and won medals but have never been called by my Prime Minister," Doubles coach Mathias Boe, who was part of the interaction, said.
