Yuvraj interacted with kids and also obliged them as they were looking for selfies. He played around with them, also sat beside them on the floor while they were having a meal. He was also spotted feeding the kids and cleaning their mess.
“Kids always need a little bit of magic and fun in their lives. It was indeed a delight to watch the kids enjoy themselves so much. Rudra truly felt magical,” Singh said in a statement.
Now, here is how Ronaldo’s interaction with kids at a Make-a-Wish-Foundation was…
“I’m sure just like today, Rudra will definitely succeed in adding magic to the life of children across the country.”
Yuvraj Singh, on the cricketing front is struggling to cement his place in the squad. He has been a star all-rounder for India for many years. He has also picked up the coveted man of the Series award when India clinched the 2011 World Cup. He also happens to be one of the few cricketers in the world to have hit six sixes in an over. To see him do such work should act as an eye-opener for the ones.
Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand, will be playing for Portugal in the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2018.
