Salman, Bindra and Sachin as Olympic mascots: Twitter has its own take

first_imgWith Sachin Tendulkar accepting Indian Olympic Association’s invite to be India’s brand ambassador to the games, Twitter, as usual, had its own tongue-in-cheek reaction to the development.Sachin joined Salman Khan and ace shooter Abhinav Bindra to become the third Goodwill Ambassador for India at Rio.A lot of tweeters however continued to deride the earlier choice of Salman Khan as mascot, though some jokes were just aimed at the size of the “ambassador contingent”.  Soon, we will have a seperate contingent for all India’s Goodwill Ambassadors at the Olympics & will have to find a sportsperson to lead it.; Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) May 3, 2016 India’s Goodwill Ambassador meet -Abhinav Bindra: I shoot targets.Sachin: I shoot TVCs.Salman: No comments.
