Saluting the nation's armed forces for their commitment and their patriotism, India's 13th President, Pranab Mukherjee, said on Tuesday that it was also heartening to see the armed forces producing medal winners at this year's Olympics in London.

Expressing pride in the achievement, he said: " I congratulate all who have done their nation proud at the recently concluded Games, by winning as well as by participating. The number of trophies may not be too large, but it is a remarkable improvement upon the last count."

"Four years later, when I hope to address you again, I am sure, we will celebrate a medals spring," he added. (ANI)
