Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised shuttler Lakshya Sen on Sunday for putting up a valiant effort after losing the All England Championships final, and expressed confidence that he will continue to achieve new heights of achievement. Sen’s fantasy run at the All England Championships came to an end on Sunday with a painful straight-game loss in the men’s singles final against world number one and Olympic champion Viktor Axelsen, extending India’s 21-year wait for the prized trophy.
“@lakshya sen, I’m really proud of you! You’ve demonstrated incredible courage and perseverance. You put up a valiant effort. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours “Modi sent out a tweet.
“I am optimistic that you will continue to achieve new heights of accomplishment,” stated the prime minister.

“@lakshyasen, you are unrivalled. You’ve earned the hearts of a billion people. Congratulations on an outstanding performance. Lakshya Sen You have been a credit to India! Best of luck in your future endeavours, “Gandhi sent out a tweet.
Sen, 20, failed on the edge of history after making too many blunders to lose 10-21 15-21 against former champion Axelsen in the summit game after four days of thrilling badminton.
