"But in the last few years infrastructure is getting better, there are better facilities available to sports personalities and it reflects on the number of medals we have been able to achieve and go karting or motor sport is heading in that direction, so it s about being persistent and also supporting sports. If you support them, appreciate their performances they are all going to deliver and perform, they all need encouragement and we have to encourage sports in general," Tendulkar added.
