New Delhi, Aug 27 (IBNS): India's badminton queen PV Sindhu, who recently won the World Championship title, met PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday who described her as a 'champion'.

"India’s pride, a champion who has brought home a Gold and lots of glory! Happy to have met @Pvsindhu1 . Congratulated her and wished her the very best for her future endeavours," Modi tweeted.

PV Sindhu, India's badminton icon, added one more feather to her cap as she won the final of the World Championship by beating her strong competitor Nozomi Okuhara of Japan on Sunday.

She won the gold medal by beating her opponent 21-7, 21-7.

She became the first Indian player to win the BWF World Championships gold medal.

Sindhu won the title just months before India will participate in the Olympics and the nation will be dreaming big from her.

Sindhu completely dominated Sunday's match and gave no chance to her opponent to gain grounds in the match.
