Yuvraj meets Sachin in London
Yuvraj Singh, recovering after his treatment in a US hospital for cancer, found a visitor in Sachin Tendulkar here yesterday. Tendulkar is currently in London to consult a specialist doctor to have the big toe on his right foot looked at.
Yuvraj was discharged from the hospital on March 18 after completing the third and final cycle of chemotherapy to recover from his illness. "3rd chemo cycles over, back from hospital n I am free. Road to recovery starts now. Can't wait to be back home," Yuvraj had tweeted after being discharged.
The two met for an hour at an apartment of Yuvraj's friend. Yuvraj received a warm embrace from Tendulkar and the two posed for photographs. Sachin also wished Yuvraj a speedy recovery and an early return to the game. During the treatment in Indianapolis, Yuvraj had been visited by former India skipper and leg-spinner Anil Kumble.
Yuvraj had dedicated his 2011 World Cup Player of the Tournament award to Tendulkar. He won the award for scoring 362 runs and grabbing 15 wickets in nine matches. Yuvraj has not played competitive cricket since taking part in two of three home Tests against the West Indies in November last year.
