Indian cricket idol, Sachin Tendulkar who turns 48 this month, has been admitted to the hospital as a precautionary measure. He was earlier quarantining at home after contracting the virus five days ago. Tendulkar retired from the game in 2013 after scoring 100 test centuries, a record that stands to the day.
“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.” Tendulkar tweeted. “Take care and stay safe everyone. Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win.”
He resides in Mumbai, a state in Western India that has been hit the hardest with the second wave of the coronavirus. Maharashtra recorded 43,183 new cases out of which 8,646 were from the capital, Mumbai.
