India's sports minister and former Olympic silver medal-winning shooter Rajyawardhan Singh Rathore had quite a fun time with trainees at the Sports Authority of India centre in Bhopal yesterday. He posted this picture as he shadow-boxed with a trainee boxer, and captioned it: "I was a military academy #boxing medalist back in my young days -- 77NDA/87Reg IMA. My coursemates will vouch. This young #boxer was kind to allow me some practice punches; what a special feeling to be amongst #athletes."
