Since Neeraj Chopra made India proud by winning a historic gold medal in athletics at Tokyo Olympics 2020, he has become an inspiration for the entire nation. From talking about his journey to his sensational acting skills in the Cred Ad, the 23-year-old has been in the news for various different reasons. However, despite all the fame and popularity he has achieved in last few months, he has maintained his humble nature throughout which is something that fans really admire about him.
For a youngster coming from a small village in Panipat, it was never going to be an easy task for him to handle so much pressure from media. But much to everyone's delight, Neeraj has successfully managed to retain his own identity and his humility. He has often been seen interacting with fans and kids on a regular basis. But a recent video of his conversation with a young girl is so adorable that it is melting everyone's hearts on social media.
Heartwarming conversation between Neeraj and young girl
In the footage, the javelin thrower can be seen telling a young girl about an athlete (whose name could not be known in the short clip). While talking to the kid, Neeraj said, "Aapne suna hai uska naam? Usko search karna aap, vo kaafi ache athlete rahe hai."
However, the heartwarming part of the video was the fact that the young girl, very innocently, said that she has not heard about the name of athlete Neeraj was talking about. Instead, she added, "Mere favourite toh aap hi ho," in a very cute tone which even left the 23-year-old Neeraj smiling.

The video was taken at Panipat Sports Stadium on Wednesday where Neeraj notably interacted with kids, who could represent India in future. An Olympic gold medalist taking out time to talk to youngsters was something that made all the fans extremely happy as they hailed Neeraj for his humility and simplicity.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old has also been recommended for the honorary Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna award for his incredible performance in sports.
