Sachin Tendulkar, a former Indian cricketer, was hospitalised on March 27 after testing positive for COVID-19. On his official Twitter account, Tendulkar confirmed the news.
"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.
He also commented on India's World Cup win ten years ago, which occurred on this day. Tendulkar was a member of the Indian team that won the prestigious trophy.
In the same tweet, he said, "Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win."
On March 27, Tendulkar revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19. He stated that all other members of his family had tested negative for the virus in a statement.
The iconic former batsman, 47, was recently seen in action during the Road Safety World Series, which saw many former world cricket greats return to action.
However, just days after the tournament, four members of the India Legends squad — Tendulkar, Subramaniam Badrinath, Irfan Pathan, and Yusuf Pathan — confirmed that they had tested positive for COVID-19.
This comes as a second wave of novel coronavirus infections sweeps India, especially Tendulkar's hometown of Mumbai.
