It was a historic day for India on Day 13 of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics as they won two medals on the same day of the quadrennial event for the first time in their history. 

The day started on a great note as the Indian men's hockey team ended their 41-year wait for an Olympic medal as the Men in Blue defeated Germany 5-4 to bag the bronze medal. Later in the day, Ravi Kumar Dahiya became just the second Indian wrestler to win an Olympic silver after Sushil Kumar, who achieved the feat in London 2012.

However, they were some disappointing results on the wrestling mat as Deepak Punia missed the bronze medal by a whisker while India's top medal contender Vinesh Phogat was stunned in the women’s freestyle 53kg quarter-finals. 

Here's what happened during the day.
