New Delhi, Aug 25: Former India batsman Virender Sehwag gave an epic response to eminent British journalist Piers Morgan on Twitter for mocking India's celebration of winning 'two' medals at Rio Olympics 2016.
Morgan took to Twitter to slam Indians on Wednesday (Aug 24) and wrote,"Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?"
The legendary India batsman, who has developed a knack for his witty oneliners and hilarious tweets, joined several other Indians to slam Morgan but in his own unique style.
Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that? https://t.co/FYSBM7ErAf— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 24, 2016
Sehwag trolled Morgan where it would have hurt him the most.
This is what Sehwag had to say to the British, who's country hasn't won a single ICC ODI World Cup.

Morgan tried saving himself the humiliation by reminding that England won the T20 World Cup but, perhaps, it was too late.

India won just two medals at the Rio Olympics 2016.
Sakshi Malik bagged bronze medal in women's 58 kg wrestling category and PV Sindhu won the first ever silver medal for India in women's badminton category.
While the achievement was below par but Indians have every reason to celebrate Sakshi and Sindhu's triumphs.
