India men's hockey team goalkeeper PR Sreejesh took to Instagram to share pictures with his family after returning from Tokyo. Sreejesh received a warm welcome in Kochi after his heroics at the Tokyo Olympics as he reunited with his family. The 33-year-old played a key role as India won its first Olympic medal in 41 years in hockey. "Let me show you what I have got for you," Sreejesh captioned the pictures. India had defeated Germany 5-4 in a thrilling bronze medal match to ensure a podium finish at the Tokyo Games.
In the cliffhanger against Germany, Sreejesh made a remarkable save in the dying seconds of the bronze medal clash.
After winning the bronze, Sreejesh had dedicated his medal to his father. The star goalkeeper had tweeted a picture of him along with a video of his father celebrating the win.

India had conceded seven goals against Australia in their second Pool fixture. However, in the very next match, Sreejesh kept a clean sheet as they beat Spain 3-0 to get their campaign back on track.
After the slip-up against Australia, Indian men's hockey team won four matches on the trot to seal a place in the semi-finals.
The Indian side put up a valiant performance against world number one Belgium but came short after conceding three goals in the final 15 minutes of the match.
