NEW DELHI — India cricket great Sachin Tendulkar returned home April 8 after nearly a week in a Mumbai hospital with the coronavirus.

The 47-year-old Tendulkar, test cricket’s all-time leading run-scorer, tested positive for COVID-19 March 27 and was hospitalized April 2.

“I have just come home from the hospital and will remain isolated while continuing to rest and recuperate,” Tendulkar tweeted. He thanked the healthcare staff “who took such good care of me and have been working tirelessly for over a year in such difficult circumstances.”

The Press Trust of India news agency said all of his family members have tested negative.

Tendulkar took part in a cricket veterans’ tournament in the central Indian city of Raipur last month.
