In a gaffe that left the city red-faced, the organisers of the National Sports Day celebrations in Visakhapatnam mistook PT Usha for tennis star Sania Mirza. They erected a poster with a photograph of Sania Mirza bearing the name of the legendary track and field athlete, PT Usha.
The poster, put up near the Submarine museum on Beach Road, went viral as people began to share the goof-up on social media. While some criticised the poster, others cracked jokes. Take a look at some of the reactions it inspired:
