P V Sindhu was the toast of the nation on Friday when she became the first Indian woman to win an individual Olympic silver.

To celebrate this feat, Uber on Saturday turned their cars into shuttles on the app, for one day. In a truly heartwarming gesture, a search for available cars from a particular location, was pulling up a map with the cars in the vicinity turned into shuttles. 

"Celebrating PV Sindhu's silver medal and stellar performance at the Rio games, we have changed cars on the Uber app to shuttles for today. Sindhu has not only brought glory to India but has also fired up the imagination of millions across the country and we want to celebrate the moment with this little tribute," a Uber spokesperson said.
