Would you be kind enough toi tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following excerpt from an English text?
“Jubilation over the dramatic rescue reached from the White House to Underhill, Vt., Captain Phillips’s hometown, and from personnel aboard the Bainbridge to the cheering, fist-pumping 19-member crew of the captain’s cargo ship, the Maersk Alabama, docked in Mombasa, Kenya.“
fist-pump = praise enthusiastically
Thank you for your efforts.
