PV Sindhu, waiting for you to join the club, says Abhinav Bindra as Twitter erupts with joy

PV Sindhu stormed into the finals of the women's singles badminton event at Rio 2016 Olympics after beating Japan's Nozomi Okuhara 21-19, 21-10 in the semi-finals to guarantee a silver or gold medal for India.

Twitter erupted in jubilation as Sindhu used her aggression to shut the Japanese shuttler down and chart her way to a historic final. She becomes India's first badminton player in the finals of an Olympic event and has also made history by being a part of a non-Chinese women's singles final in Olympics badminton, a first since 1996.

Here's a look at some of the most popular tweets after Sindhu's spectacular victory:

Sindhu is now set to face World No 1 Carolina Marin of Spain in the final. A win would make her the first Indian woman to win an individual gold medal. But in case she doesn't, a silver medal is at least guaranteed for India. The final is set to take place on Friday at 7:30 PM IST.
