New Delhi: Grappler Sushil Kumar came home to a hero's welcome as he set foot at the New Delhi airport late Monday night. He was greeted and cheered by hundreds of fans and supporters after his feat at the World Wrestling Championship in Moscow.

The bronze medalist Olympian from Delhi's Baprola village made history by becoming the first Indian to win a World wrestling championship gold medal when he overpowered Alan Gogaev to win the 66kg freestyle title.

"I have reached this stage because of my coach Satpal. My prime focus is now the Commonwealth Games and I am confident of doing well there," he told reporters.
