Priya Malik defeated Belarusian, Kseniya Patapovich 5-0 in the final to claim the gold medal. However, there seems to be huge confusion among Indian fans, who consider that Priya Malik has bagged a medal at the Tokyo Olympics.

Ishant Sharma's tweet was meant in a good way, as he poured out his wishes to Priya Malik for winning a gold medal. However, his error was quickly spotted by some top journalists and fans, who pointed out his mistake.

Indian all-rounder, Hanuma Vihari fell in the same trap, as he too confused Priya Malik's gold medal at World Wrestling Cadet Championships. Vihari thought that India won its first gold medal at Tokyo Olympics this year, and gave out his congratulations to Priya Malik.

Several politicians also made the same error, and were confused with two ongoing events in two different parts of the world. Bhumi Pednekar, Bollywood actress was also one among the several stars who tweeted about Priya Malik winning a gold medal at Tokyo Olympics, instead of the World Wrestling Cadet Championships.
