New Delhi, Aug 4: Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated boxer Lovlina Borgohain on winning a bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday and said her win is a testimony to the talent and tenacity of India's "Nari Shakti" (women power).

Modi congratulated Borgohain over the phone and said her success is a matter of immense pride for every Indian, especially for Assam and the northeast. Sources said the prime minister, in a lighter vein, told Borgohain that she was born on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2) and while "Gandhiji spoke about non-violence, she is famous for her punches".

Borgohain (69kg) signed off with a bronze medal in the Olympic Games after a comprehensive 0-5 loss to reigning world champion Busenaz Surmeneli of Turkey. Modi later tweeted: "Well fought @LovlinaBorgohai! Her success in the boxing ring inspires several Indians. Her tenacity and determination are admirable. Congratulations to her on winning the Bronze. Best wishes for her future endeavours. #Tokyo2020."
