Olympic bronze medal-winning Indian hockey team goalkeeper PR Sreejesh on Friday posted a tweet in which he expressed his disappointment at IndiGo airlines for charging him extra for his "goalkeeper baggage".

The goalkeeper highlighted that the International Hockey Federation (FIH) allows him to carry a hockey stick which is over 40 inches, however on the contrary the airline demanded more than a thousand rupees for him to carry the same.

Sreejesh has recently been nominated for the FIH Men's Goalkeeper of the Year Award 2021-22. He was a part of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics bronze medal-winning team.
