The Queen of Indian boxing took top honours at the 2018 Commonwealth Games as Mary Kom won gold in the 45-48kg category.
She defeated Kristina O’Hara in the final.
Even at 35, she still packs a mean punch and used it to mean the elusive CWG medal.
What made it special was that this was her first ever CWG event. And she capped it off with the highest possible success. What a woman!
Needless to say, Twitter was not going to keep quiet about it:
