Like many of us, even India shuttler Saina Nehwal seems to be a fan of cartoon character Mickey Mouse, which turned 90 on November 18, the day Mickey appeared on screen in cartoon Steamboat Willie.

Saina was very happy receiving a personalised tee of Mickey as gift. Yesterday, she posted this picture on her Twitter handle and wrote: "Thank u so much @DisneyIndia for the lovely gifts ...#90thmickeyanniversary."
