Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 4 July met Indian athletes who will represent the country at the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

At the event organised at the Manekshaw Centre, PM Modi was seen interacting with the sportspersons and wishing them luck in the world's biggest sporting arena. The athletes also clicked selfies with the Prime Minister.

A total of 102 athletes from India from 13 different sport disciplines have already been selected with a few more names expected to be added before the start of the mega-event. This is the largest Indian contingent at the Olympics yet, with the 2012 London Olympics taking second place with 83 Indian athletes.

The 2016 Summer Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 5-21 August.
