Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has been hospitalised after he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 27. Tendulkar confirmed the same on his official Twitter account.
“Thank you for your wishes and prayers. As a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice, I have been hospitalised. I hope to be back home in a few days. Take care and stay safe everyone, he wrote.
Sachin Tendulkar was admitted to H.N.Reliance Foundation Hospital late at night after complaints of cold and fever.
He also remembered India’s World Cup victory, which took place on this day 10 years ago. Tendulkar was a part of the Indian team which lifted the coveted trophy.
“Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win,” he further wrote in the same tweet.
Tendulkar had announced on March 27 that he had tested positive for COVID-19. In a statement, he confirmed that all the other members of his family had tested negative for the virus.
The 47-year-old legendary former batsman was recently seen in action during the Road Safety World Series, which saw a return of many former world cricket greats.
However, four members of the India Legends squad — Tendulkar, Subramaniam Badrinath, Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan confirmed that they had tested positive for COVID-19 merely days after the tournament’s completion.
