Injured Saina Nehwal responds to her critic in the sweetest way possible

India's ace badminton player Saina Nehwal, whose knee injury affected her progress in the badminton event of the Rio Olympic 2016, responded to a troll on Twitter in the most dignified and respectful manner.

A Twitter user claiming to be Saina Nehwal's fan told her to pack her bags and leave after PV Sindhu made it to the finals of the badminton women's single event at the Rio Olympics.

Here's what Saina replied to her critic:

The person extended an apology soon after receiving a response from the badminton player.

Saina had cited an inflammation in her right knee, which hampered her on-court movement, as the reason for her shock group league exit.

The World No 5 lost her second group league encounter 18-21, 19-21 to World No 61 Ulitina to crash out of the competition. Saina had said the injury happened during training before the Olympics had begun and it got worse during the match.
