New DELHI: Recovering from a malignant tumour, India's World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh was in for a pleasant surprise when some fans met him outside his apartment in Boston and wished a speedy recovery.
Yuvraj posted the picture of fans clapping and cheering him on the micro-blogging site Twitter, where the cricketer was seen wearing a blue jacket, cap and sunglasses.
Touched by their gesture, Yuvraj, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy in Boston for rare germ cell cancer between his lungs, wrote on the site, "Local students and fans came to wish me just outside my app! Felt like I was in india ! Sweet of thm."
Earlier replying to a post by the legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne, Yuvraj wrote, "hey you legend! Thanks mate I'm doing good staying positive! Hope you and family are well cheers!"
Warne had tweeted, "Hey buddy thinking of you lots my friend and hope your smiling and fighting champion !!! Here if you need anything..."
Yuvraj had last month stated that the tumour between his lungs is almost out of his system. He is expected to be back on the field in the first week of May.
The 30-year-old left-hander has been in US since January this year. The cricketer has gone bald during the treatment, which will go on till the last week of March before the process of rehabilitation starts in April.
He has completed two cycles of chemotherapy.
