The leading run scorer of all time and India's heartthrob posted a picture of his left leg, covered in a black cast, on his official instagram account and commented that he hopes for a speedy recovery.
The fact that he is in the hospital post surgery resting, does not bog down his spirits. The iconic batsman shared a picture of his knee post the surgery with his fans. The caption read, “Some injuries trouble even after retirement, but I will be back very soon doing the things I enjoy. Had a knee operation & resting”.
Thousands of people reacted with shock and sympathy by liking the picture and posting comments on it.
Tendulkar is currently the mentor of IPL team Mumbai Indians. Last month, a panel that included Tendulkar chose Kumble as India's coach.
