Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar entered hospital Friday as a precautionary measure after testing positive for coronavirus, reports AFP. Tendulkar, 47, who initially quarantined at home for six days, is one of the most high-profile cases of a new pandemic surge in India. "As a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice, I have been hospitalised," the batting hero said on Twitter. The former India skipper recently led an India Legends team to a win over Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 exhibition series earlier this week. Three other players who took part in the so-called Road Safety World series, including brothers Yusuf and Irfan Pathan, have also tested positive for the virus in recent days.
