India badminton ace Saina Nehwal's father Harvir Singh is a complete sports buff and does not just necessarily only follow his daughter's sport. Yesterday, he was at the Jakarta Convention Centre Assembly Hall to catch India's freestyle wrestlers in action. Nehwal Sr was in his seat much before time.

"Wrestling is very exciting to watch. I'm here to see Sushil Kumar in action. I hope he can win a medal," he told mid-day with a broad smile moments before Sushil's first-round bout. Unfortunately, Nehwal Sr's smile was wiped off his face when Sushil lost first up.
