Former Indian cricketer and famously known as the ‘God of Cricket’, Sachin Tendulkar, has tested positive for COVID-19. In an unfortunate turn of events, Sachin, on Saturday, revealed that he has tested positive for coronavirus by taking to Twitter and making the announcement. The legendary Indian superstar was recently seen representing the India Legends in the Road Safety World Series.
The Indian Legends won the tournament that took place in Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Notably, Sachin Tendulkar caught the virus after returning back home. Had he tested positive during the tournament, the tournament would have come to a standstill. However, with COVID-19 tests on a regular basis and bio-bubbles in place, it is clear that Sachin has tested COVID positive after returning back home.
