PURE GOLD! Twitter goes nuts as Vijay Goel calls PV Sindhu & Sakshi Malik 'gold medallists'

New Delhi: Union Sports Minister and BJP leader Vijay Goel has had a rollercoaster of a ride since the start of Rio Olympics and he yet again suffered a foot-in-mouth moment, while he referred PV Sindhu and Sakshi Malik as “gold medallists”, instead of silver and bronze respectively.

Though Goel had later released a statement saying it was just a slip of tongue, but twitter just can't get enough of the incident and people have continued to troll the Sports Minister.
