Double Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar on Monday welcomed the NADA decision to exonerate Narsingh Yadav from charges of doping. The ruling would enable Narsingh to represent the country at the Olympic Games.

Sushil and Narsingh were locked in a bitter legal battle as to who would represent the country in the 74kg category.

Narsingh won the quota place while Sushil wanted a trial.

Bahot Khushi ki baat hain. Mera support pahle bhi thaa, aaj bhi bhain aur kal bhi rahega [It’s a great news. My support was there earlier also, even today and will remain tomorrow]. Go win for me and the country,” Sushil tweeted.

“[It’s] very unfortunate to see the wrestling go through this. I have given my life to I and will always support fellow wrestlers,” he added.
