Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, who tested positive for Covid-19 last week, has been admitted to hospital.
Tendulkar tweeted on Friday that he decided to go to a hospital in Mumbai “as a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice”.
The former captain, who is loved by millions, added that he was hoping to be back home in a few days.
Several Indian cities, including Mumbai, have seen a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases in the past few weeks.
Tendulkar, 47, shared the news at a time when India is staring at what experts have called a “deadlier second wave”.
India reported 81,466 news cases and 469 deaths on Thursday – the highest daily spike since December. (BBC)
