Indian cricket great Sachin Tendulkar has been on the front foot in the country’s fight against the coronavirus pandemic. While he has made monetary contributions during both the waves of the dreaded virus, he has also been active in spreading awareness and urging his vast fan base to follow all the COVID-related protocols.
As India is observing National Doctors’ Day on July 1, the legendary cricketer took to social media to share a strong message for medical professionals. He not only shared the message as a story on his Instagram but also changed his profile picture across his social media platforms- Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Lauding the doctors for their support, the 48-year-old wrote, "Whenever the world has needed them they have come forth, always putting the patients first, living by their 'oath'. Thank you dear doctors for tirelessly and selflessly serving society!"
Here is Sachin's new profile picture:
Notably, Sachin was himself diagnosed with COVID-19 after he led India Legends to victory in the first Road Safety World Series competition. As a precautionary measure, he was even hospitalised but later beat the virus to regain health and fitness. He was recently spotted with his former national teammates Ajit Agarkar and Yuraj Singh at a golf course.
"Last time u woke me up at 4 am was 21 years ago 🤪🤪😅😴! When it was my first tour to Sharjah . @imaagarkar I’m sure is used to it 👺 ! Fun times love ⛳️ 🏌️♂️ @sachintendulkar," Yuvi had captioned the Instagram post where he shared the pics along with the Mumbaikars- Tendulkar and Agarkar.
