Kumaraswamy, Table Tennis player Manika Batra and the entire fraternity of the Indian Police Service Officers (IPS) to take on the challenge and post their fitness videos. Earlier, Virat was challenged by the Sports Minister himself which he completed gleefully by posting a video of his best workout and had nominated MS Dhoni, his wife Anushka Sharma and Modi for the same.

Mr Kumaraswamy's reply came soon after. Yoga and treadmill are part of my daily workout regime. PM Modi posted a video on twitter this morning and shared his fitness mantra with the nation.

Modi tweeted, "Here are moments from my morning exercises". The advice was reportedly to assign portfolios at the soonest and not take any burden. The fitness challenges are part of the #HumFitTohIndiaFit campaign initiated by Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore last month. Accepting the challenge, PM Modi had then tweeted: "Challenge accepted, Virat!"

Similarly, the honourable Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi has also completed the fitness challenge posed to him by the Indian captain Virat Kohli.
