In an encouraging gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today poured congratulations on the Indian Olympic contingent, saying every athlete gave his or her best at the just concluded Rio Olympics.

"Want to specially wish the Indian contingent at #Rio2016. Every athlete gave his or her best," PM Modi wrote on Twitter.

The Prime Minister also congratulated Brazil for hosting a "memorable" Games.

"Special gratitude to the host nation, Brazil for hosting people from across the world and organising memorable #OlympicGames," he said.

India finished 67th on the overall medals tally with only two medals -- a silver and a bronze won, respectively, by P.V. Sindhu in badminton and Sakshi Malik in wrestling.
