NEW DELHI: Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has extended his best wishes to the Indian Olympic contingent.
Taking to microblogging site Twitter, the cricket icon wrote, "We all get goosebumps when we see the tricolour being represented! This Olympics, it shall be no different and we’ll all be cheering loudly from India as you make us proud."
"During the epidemic, we all had difficulties, including our athletes. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, our phthalates continue to practice, and every victory is always seconds away, therefore they have worked hard for years to achieve this. Accordingly, they require our best wishes and support as they prepare for the Tokyo Olympics," he added.
"Let's cheer for India," Sachin Tendulkar wrote further.
Despite the postponement, which is a first in the Games' history, the event has retained the name 'Tokyo 2020' for branding considerations.
The Tokyo Olympics begin on July 23 and end on August 9.
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will host a total of 33 competitions and 339 events across 42 venues, setting a new record.
