New Delhi: Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal is likely to be out of action for four months after undergoing a knee surgery at a Mumbai hospital.

The former World No.1 was advised rest for three to four months by the doctors.

The Hyderabad girl has provided regular updates to her fans and followers through her Twitter account. 

On Sunday however, she uploaded the image of her knee's broken bone. 

Several Indians mocked Saina after PV Sindhu's win. Some of them even went as far ahead as to suggest that she had faked an injury.

This image would perhaps serve as a much-needed reminder to those who undervalue the pain and sacrifice athletes endure to compete at the highest level.

Saina had made an early exit from the Rio Olympics. She had lost in the group stage after suffering a straight game defeat against Ukraine's Maria Ulitina in the second match.

She later revealed that she had a inflammation on her right knee.
