Twitter was quick to congratulate the Indian kabaddi team and some big names led the celebrations.
India produced a stunning comeback to beat Iran 38-29 and lift the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup. It was a scintillating performance from the host nation, which was regarded as the favourites before the tournament had started. The win did not come easy as Iran were leading at half time but raider Ajay Thakur produced yet another stunning performance to inspire a roaring come back.
