Social media went into overdrive to laud the success of Chanu and one of her admirers was Chris Hemsworth, who lauded the Indian 'legend' but with a 'Thor' twist.

"Time for Thor to give up his hammer," wrote a fan tagging Hemsworth, who plays the Marvel character Thor, in his tweet marking Chanu's incredible performance at the Games. "She is worthy! Congrats, Saikhom, you legend," Hemsworth responded.

In reply to the Hollywood star's praise, Mirabai Chanu wrote, "Thank u so much @chrishemsworth Always love to watch you."

Meanwhile, as soon as Nooh Dastagir Butt won Pakistan's first gold medal at the Birmingham Games, one of the first persons to lend a congratulatory hand was none other than Indian superstar Mirabai Chanu.
