New Delhi [India], July 7 (ANI): External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Sunday revealed the secret of his physical fitness after he shared a picture wherein he could be seen playing squash.

The hashtag accompanying the post was Khelo India, a flagship programme of the Central government to promote sports in the country.
