Indian freestyle wrestler and Tokyo Olympics medal hopeful, Bajrang Punia, has returned to social media to extend a helping hand to the country which is coming to terms with one of the most scary coronavirus wave the world has witnessed.

Announcing his return to social media Bajrang posted, "I have gone off social media to focus all my energy at the Olympics.

If I cannot help the country being a well-known athlete then there is no use of being one. I am happy to help the country in any means possible during these testing times."
