Well-Known Indian singer and music composer AR Rahman has been selected as the fourth Goodwill Ambassador for the Rio Olympics. Rahman is well-respected across the country and bagged an Oscar for his music in ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’
Earlier Salman Khan was named as the first Ambassador, but a lot of opposition was seen to this by Indian athletes. As damage-control, the selecting body appointed Abhinav Bindra Beijing gold medalist and ace shooter and legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar .
The Rio Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro and will begin on August 5.
