Nearly a week after testing positive for Covid-19, Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has been hospitalised "as a precautionary measure".
The 47-year-old took to social media to announce the development on Friday. He was previously quarantining at his Mumbai home.
"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 tweeted.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket, Sachin tested positive for Covid-19 on March 27 and was in home isolation ever since.
He also wished his teammates on the 10th anniversary of India's historic second World Cup win. Sachin was part of the winning team that ended India's 28-year-old World Cup drought on April 2, 2011.
“Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win,” Sachin tweeted.
