As Artem was honoured, the Israel national anthem Hatikvah was played at the Tokyo Olympics. However, a section of netizens detected an uncanny resemblenace of the tune with that of the song “Mera Mulk Mera Desh”.


For those unversed, the song is from 1996 film “Diljale” starring Ajay Devgn and Sonali Bendre. The music has been composed by Anu Malik who is notorious for ripping off tunes from international hits.


Check out the reactions below.

Dolgopyat captured gold in the men's floor exercise by edging Rayderley Zapata of Spain on a tiebreak.

Dolgopyat and Zapata were both awarded a score of 14.933 during the event finals. They both had matching execution scores during their routines. Dolgopyat earned the gold because his set was slightly more difficult than Zapata's.

Xiao Ruoteng of China earned the bronze for his third medal in Tokyo. Ruoteng took silver in the men's all-around and won a bronze during the team event last week.
