After Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh posted a video of himself scoring a fantastic goal in a Football match, social media was flooded with reactions on the goal with netizens going crazy over the skills of the chief minister.
Some praised the Manipur CM for nurturing the culture of sports and fitness while one Twitter user even went on to say that legendary midfielder 'Zidane would have been proud of the goal'.
Another netizen compared the Manipur CM with the likes of former President of the United States Barack Obama as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin who are known to be sports enthusiasts and are known to be associated with sports - in Obama's case, with Basketball, and in Putin's case, for ice hockey, swimming in icy waters, shirtless horse-riding among other 'macho' pursuits.
