And the token is not any thing general, but a cheque of Rs. 1,01,000 as appreciation! Yes you got it right, Khan will be presenting each player who has gone to represent India at Olympic with a cheque of Rs. 1,01,000.Salman declared this on twitter and he wrote, “As a gesture of appreciation for our Olympic athletes, I will present each one with a cheque of Rs 1,01,000. The government is very supportive of sports. Each of us can also do our bit to encourage a sports nation. I admire the work that Olympic Gold Quest (OGQ) is doing to shape tmrw’s champions. And also companies like Edelweiss, Jio and others who have come forward to support the Olympics.”
Let us also brush up for you that the total number of players who have gone to Rio Olympics 2016 from India are 121 athletes, including 54 women. Now you reckon the amount Salman would be giving away as appreciation!
That’s another story altogether that this time India has been unlucky enough not to bag any gold till now! Let’s pray for that! And thank Mr. Salman for his generous gesture!
