New Delhi: Controversial British journalist Piers Morgan has been in the news this week after his comments about India's Rio Olympics performance. (How Pakistan fans trolled Virat Kohli after Misbah-ul-Haq and co dethroned India in ICC rankings)
Piers said it was embarrassing to witness wild celebrations in India despite winning just two medals.
The 51-year-old, a keen cricket fan, also used the example of Sachin Tendulkar to assert his point.
If India can produce a batsman as brilliant as @sachin_rt then it can produce Gold medal winning Olympians. Needs investment & focus.

Natually, his remarks infuriated Indian Twitter. Piers was trolled right through the day by almost everyone from the general public to celebrities like Virender Sehwag and Chetan Bhagat.
Not one to back down, Morgan hit back with some brilliant retorts.
Surprisingly, among those making a case for India was a Pakistani journalist and statistician Mazher Arshad.
Here's how he silenced Morgan..
Can Gold medal winning countries, lets say US and China, produce as brilliant batsman as Sachin? Just wondering... https://t.co/Qh5SOfdmSX
