Gandhi obliged, handed over the mic and got down to the task. Merolin and Gandhi were then seen doing one push-up after the other. The Congress leader paused as he completed 14 push-ups in ten seconds, after which Gandhi said, “Now, we will make it difficult, let’s try with one hand”. After this Gandhi was seen doing a push-up with one hand as the crowd applauded.

Gandhi also shared the clip on his Instagram account, and wrote: "Push up challenge by Merolin Shenigha, a 10th standard Judo enthusiast."

Boxer Abs:

Earlier, a photo of Rahul Gandhi, which was taken shortly after he jumped into the ocean for a swim with the fishermen in Kerala had gone viral on social media. In the photo, the faint outline of Gandhi’s abs could be seen through his shirt which prompted several personalities including boxer Vijender Singh to praise Rahul Gandhi on Twitter and ask him for fitness advice. Vijender Singh, who won bronze and silver medals for boxing at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, shared the image on the social media platform, tweeting, “Abs of a boxer… Most daring young fit & people’s leader Way to go…”
