London: Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar – who retired in 2013 – underwent a knee surgery at a hospital here on Wednesday.
Tendulkar posted a picture of his plastered left leg and said: “Some injuries trouble even after retirement, but I will be back very soon doing things I enjoy. Had a knee operation and resting.”
At least 50,000 people reacted to the post, with more than 500 shares, feeling worried about the health of the legendary batsman.
Tendulkar’s career lasted a mammoth 24 years, he played six World Cups and won the 2011 edition under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
His back created problems at one point in his career but injuries never bogged him down, he hardly missed tournaments and mega events.
Recently, he was instrumental in selecting the head coach for the Indian cricket team (Anil Kumble) along with old colleagues Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman....
