(Reuters) - Pusarla Sindhu won India's first-ever title at the world badminton championships when she comfortably beat Japan's Nozomi Okuhara 21-7 21-7 to win the women's singles in Basel on Sunday.

Sindhu also ended her own unhappy run after she lost in the previous two world finals, including one against Okuhara in 2017, as well as the Olympic final in 2016 and the Commonwealth Games final last year.
