Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, 47, hospitalised with Covid

Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has been hospitalised with Covid-19 after it was announced last week he had tested positive for the virus.

Tendulkar, who will turn 48 later this month, retired from the professional game in 2013 after notching a still unmatched 100 international centuries in a prolific 24-year career. 

The legendary batsman revealed he had contracted coronavirus on March 27 and was suffering with mild symptoms as infections continued to surge in the world’s second-most populated country.

His tweet read: ‘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.

‘Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win.’

Maharashtra had as many as 43,183 new cases on Friday with the country’s financial hub Mumbai reporting 8,646 of them – both a record for single day infections.
