Mumbai: Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has come out in support of the 1998 Asian Games gold medallist Dingko Singh, who has been suffering from bile duct cancer.

According to reports, Gambhir has extended financial support to the former Indian boxer. The cricketer, however, has opted not to publicise his help.

Gambhir also appealed for support on Twitter, he tweeted, “We must take care of our champions jst as they make us proud. Help Asian Games Gold winner by sending a text to Babai-his wife at 8131830664”.
