India batting great Sachin Tendulkar has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently in home isolation. "I've been testing myself and taking all the recommended precautions to ensure Covid is kept at bay," Tendulkar wrote on social media platform Twitter on Saturday.

 

Tendulkar added that his symptoms were mild and that no one else in his family had been affected.

The 47-year-old recently led India Legends to a title win over Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 exhibition series in Raipur last week.

The highest run-scorer of all time in both Tests and One-Day Internationals, Tendulkar retired in 2013 after playing 200 Tests, in which he scored 15,921 runs. He amassed 18,426 runs in 463 ODIs and hit 100 centuries across both formats.
