Chopra became the world number one for the first time in his career in the latest men's javelin throw rankings issued by the World Athletics.

Kharge tweeted, "Many congratulations to Neeraj Chopra on attaining the World Number 1 Rank in Men's Javelin throw category. Every Indian is proud of your extraordinary achievement! Your hard work and never give up attitude has earned this feat. Best wishes for future endeavours." "Congratulations to Neeraj Chopra on becoming world number one in the men's javelin throw rankings.
