Indian athletes who brought home laurels are in for a warm welcome with brands and the government lining up deals for them. As per media reports, industry executives are planning long-term deals, which may run for two-three years till the 2024 Paris Olympics.

India's sole gold winner thus far, Neeraj Chopra has reportedly been flooded with deals. But Chopra has been endorsing brands even before his Olympic wins with names like Gatorade, Gillette and Exxon Mobile in his kitty.
