Los Angeles: Priyanka Chopra has congratulated boxer MC Mary Kom for clinching the gold medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Games, saying the legendary fighter is and will always be a "champion" for her.  

The 35-year-old actor, who essayed the title role in the sports drama "Mary Kom", took to Twitter to praise the boxer after she scored her first CWG medal, a gold, in the women's 45-48 kg category at the games being held in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

The director of the 2014 film, Omung Kumar, also took to the microblogging site to congratulate Mary, 35. "Congratulations @MangteC for winning GOLD at #CWG2018 You were born to break records and create new history. Very very proud," Kumar wrote.
