On the last day of his test career master blaster Sachin Tendulkar delivered a speech that probably moved everyone who was listening to it.
He began with thanking his father and ended the speech saying, "I know my speech has become long. I want to thank people who have flown in from different parts of the world. I want to thank my fans from the bottom of my heart. “Sachin, Sachin” will reverberate in my ears till I stop breathing."
It’s official: Sachin Tendulkar to get Bharat Ratna
With Sachin gone, cricket will never sound the same again
Sachin’s farewell: ‘My life between 22 yards for 24 years has ended’
There’s a Sachin Tendulkar waiting to blossom in every family
Not a dry eye as Sachin bids farewell
Good wishes poured in for him from cricketers and other sports persons alike. From Roger Federer to Rahul Dravid, everyone was emotional.
