He also told his Indian admirers that he has to leave since his bus is waiting for him. The elderly man is heard encouraging Neeraj that he will reach the 90-metre mark on his next outing.
“Agli baar 90 se uppar jaayega (Next time, you will definitely throw over 90 metres),” the man said.
The now-viral video was shared on Twitter. In the short clip, the 24-year-old can be seen interacting and clicking photographs with a bunch of fans in Stockholm. Before leaving, he touched an elderly fan’s feet. One fan was even heard saying, “So down to earth.”
