Recently, while speaking to a leading news agency, PV Sindhu said that she was mentally prepared to hear the news of the Tokyo Olympics getting postponed even before the International Olympic Committee made it official. PV Sindhu also said that she was not sure if the Olympics would happen this year because every other day, a new country was getting affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking about day-to-day activities amid self-isolation, PV Sindhu said that she does some exercises whenever she can with some equipment at home. She trains for an hour-and-a-half which include some jumps or some shadow movements. She added that staying at home is fine, except that one cannot do anything, which can get a bit boring. She further said that she doesn't do much household work but she makes sure she helps her mother in the kitchen
