Virat Kohli is a determined spirit who made his way to become one of the finest cricketers of all-time through sheer self belief and hard-work. He has made run-scoring look easy and has many records to be broken in line. Kohli was the only cricketers to make it to Forbes’ list of the top 100 highest-paid athletes in the world for the year 2020.
Kohli has often showed his love for the sport through his aggression and hardly gives an inch to his opponents on the field. But off it, Kohli is a completely different personality, he likes to spend time with his family, read books, train consistently and maintain his vegan diet, and to top it all he is not fond of fame or attention.
Virat Kohli: I love to inspire people, can give away all my fame just like that
Virat Kohli is a true servant of the sport and it is no doubt that he has given it his all. Speaking his national teammate Ravichandran Ashwin, he said that, he loves the opportunity to inspire people and playing for the country has been the biggest honour for him. Besides that, he also mentioned that, he does not cares about too much fame and attention, and can give it away in the wink of an eye.
“To be honest, I love the sport. I know you are fanatic as well. I love the opportunity to do something that can inspire people. Playing for your country is the biggest honour for any sportsperson,” Kohli told Ashwin in the final episode of ‘Reminisce with Ash’.
“Having said that, if someone told me would you like to give all your fame, I would give it just like that. Because over a period of time you realise that, you are doing what is important, but you also need to be a normal person at the end of the day,” he said.
In normalcy, Kohli would be leading RCB in the IPL 2020 at the moment, but due to the pandemic situation he has resorted to training at home and interacting with sports personalities on social media.
