Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar hospitalised over Coronavirus

India's cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has been admitted to hospital with coronavirus.

The former Indian captain revealed last weekend that he had tested positive for Covid-19.

Tendulkar took to Twitter and confirmed he had been admitted as a precaution but hoped to be discharged “in a few days”.

He wrote, “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 concluded by sending his wishes to his fellow members of India’s 2011 World Cup-winning squad on the 10th anniversary of the victory against Sri Lanka.

Tendulkar scored a record 15,921 Test runs for India during a 24-year international career and is widely regarded as one of the game’s most complete batsman.
