Indonesia's Paralympic athletes will receive bonuses following their achievements at Tokyo 2020, President Joko Widodo has announced.

Widodo met with members of the Indonesian Paralympic team at the Bogor Presidential Palace in West Java today.

Indonesia was represented by 23 athletes across seven sports at the Games, which were held from August 24 to September 5.

The nation celebrated its first Paralympic gold medal in 41 years when Leani Ratri Oktila and Khalimatus Sadiyah were crowned women’s doubles SL3-SU5 champions as Para badminton debuted at the Games.

Leani secured a second gold alongside Hary Susanto in the mixed doubles SL3-SU5 and a silver in the SL3-SU5 singles.

Indonesia finished the Games with two gold, three silver and four bronze medals across four sports.

Widodo confirmed that gold medallists would receive Rp. 5.5 billion (£280,000/$385,000/€328,000) for their achievements.

Silver medallists will receive Rp. 2.5 billion (£127,000/$174,000/€148,000), with bronze medallists awarded Rp. 1.5 billion (£76,000/$104,000/€89,000).

Widodo said non-medallists will each be granted Rp. 100 million (£5,000/$7,000/€6,000).

"I and all the people of Indonesia welcome your return with joy, pleasure and pride to express our highest appreciation for your struggles and hard work in achieving achievements and bringing the name of the nation and state to life," Widodo said, according to the Indonesian President’s website.

"Thank you for the gold medal given in badminton, not just one gold but two gold straight away.

"This is a leap and you are able to prove that you can compete, that you can compete in the global arena.

"Hopefully this achievement can be an inspiration for all of us, can be a motivation for all of us, for athletes and the people of Indonesia to continue to work hard to achieve achievements in providing the best for the nation, for the country."

Widodo tweeted after the meeting that Leani presented him with one of her Tokyo 2020 badminton rackets as a gift.

The Indonesian President said he signed another of her rackets.

Joined by Minister of State secretary Pratikno, Minister of Youth and Sports Zainudin Amali, and Indonesian Paralympic Committee (NPC) President Senny Marbun at the meeting, Widodo offered encouragement to athletes to pursue further success at the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

Andi Herman, who served as Indonesia’s Chef de Mission, was also present.
