Star wrestler Sushil Kumar's coach has applied for the Padma Bhushan award for his pupil.

Although the freestyle Indian wrestler has been presented with the Padma Shri in 2011, Padma Bhushan award is a rank higher, making it all the more prestigious.

Sushil is the only Indian athlete to have won two medals in the Olympics -- a silver and a bronze. 

On getting nominated, Sushil said to ANI, “Coach Yashveer has applied for Padma Bhushan award for me.”
