The top athletes from across the globe have landed in Tokyo and have been sharing pictures from the Olympic village on their respective social media accounts. On Thursday, Indian shuttler B Sai Praneeth bumped into the number one ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic and shared the special moment with his followers by posting a selfie with the Serbian star on Twitter. “Pic of the day,” Praneeth tweeted.

A fan also used the result of Djokovic’s remarkable comeback win over Greece star Stefanos Tsitsipas in the French Open final to inspire the Indian shuttler.”An event where cross-country Champions meet. Superb Sai. Think about this score, where such comebacks are also possible,” the user wrote along with an infographic of Djokovic.

“Being in the Olympic village is a great place to stay since the world’s best sports players stay. There will be quite a few chances to run info, get it into great sportsmen and inspire,” said another follower.
