INDIA’S OLYMPIAN Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has taken to Twitter to urge Indians to become fit.

In a selfie video posted on Tuesday, a nattily dressed Rathore is seen sitting on a stability ball and then moving on to do push-ups effortlessly, all in his work clothes and without even a hint of discomfort.

And his message: he was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ability to work tirelessly to include a regular regime of exercise to his work day. And, he wanted everyone to do so too and become fit.

Rathore asked others to post videos of their ‘fitness mantra’ and send a ‘fitness challenge’ to their friends on social media. He also challenged actor Hrithik Roshan, cricketer Virat Kohli and badminton champion Saina Nehwal by tagging them to his post.

Soon after, Nehwal responded to the challenge by posting her exercise video.
