Her 5-0 victory over Ukraine’s Hanna Okhota via a unanimous verdict in the 48kg category helped her overtake Irish legend Katie Taylor (five gold and a bronze) as the most successful female boxer at the world championship. Adding to her unprecedented six gold medals, super Mary had also clinched a silver in the inaugural edition of the championship in 2001.
Even as the 35-year-old, mother of three, broke into tears holding the national flag high and upwards inside the ring, Twitter couldn’t stop praising one of the greatest female boxers of all time.

She later took to social media to thank her coaches and the entire nation for its support. “I have done my duty,” wrote super Mary on Twitter.

Here are few reactions from big and eminent personalities:
