Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and President Isaac Herzog congratulate Israel’s mixed team in judo after it won a bronze medal at the Olympics.

“After Sagi Muki’s loss last week, I spoke to him. It was important for me to tell him that I’m proud of him and the example he is for the youth. Today Muki and his teammates on the judo team showed us all how to pick yourself up from a fall!” tweets Bennett.

“Way to go, Israel is proud of you,” he adds.

Herzog also expresses his pride, during a phone call with the team.
