Indian wrestler Bajrang Punia kicked off India’s medal count at the 2018 Asian Games with a gold medal. The Indian registered an 11-8 victory over Japan’s Takatani Daichi in the men’s free-stye 65kg final.

Unfortunately, a ‘rusty’ Sushil lost his last chance to add an Asiad gold to his collection of medals after losing his qualification bout 3-5 to Bahrain’s Adam Batirov in the 74kg category.

Here is how social media reacted to Punia’s gold medal winning bout.
