Have you ever imagined what happens when two ‘Gods’ of their respective fields meet and shake their hands? You have tears of joy in your eyes and your heart melts like butter on hot frying pan (Sorry, for the bad reference, but you get it right?). Yeah, that’s probably what happened with the fans of Sachin Tendulkar and David Beckham on the Day 6 of Wimbledon Championship 2014.
Some things are known for its traditions, and Wimbledon is definitely among them. Wimbledon kept their tradition of inviting sporting stars on first weekend. Former England football captain David Beckham and India’s now-retired cricket legend Tendulkar were invited in Centre Court’s Royal Box. Tendulkar being a self-confessed Tennis fan visited with ex-England captain Andrew Strauss.
Sachin Tendulkar was accompanied by his wife Anjali, while David Beckham was accompanied by his mother Sandra. Apart from these two legends, other star names that rained on that day were Football legend Sir Bobby Charlton,England rugby captain Chris Robshaw, England cricketers past and present in Phil Tufnell, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn, golfer Ian Poulter, boxing stars David Haye and Anthony Joshua, and British squash ace Laura Massaro.
It was definitely one of the ‘legend wait-for-it dary’ moments when Sachin Tendulkar was introduced to David Beckham!
