Sachin gives away BMW to Saina Nehwal

Monday August 20, 2012 12:06:05 AM, IANS

Hyderabad: Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar gave away a brand new BMW car to India's most successful shuttler Saina Nehwal at a function here Sunday night.

The batting maestro, who arrived here along with rest of the team to play the first test against New Zealand starting here Aug 23, gave away the car to Saina, who won a bronze medal in the London Olympics.

The car was presented by Sachin's close friend and former Andhra Ranji captain V. Chamundeswaranath to Saina, who became the first ever Indian badminton player to win an Olympic medal.

Sachin also gave away Maruti Swift car to young shuttler Pusarla Venkata Sindhu, who won the girls' singles title in the Asian Youth Under-19 Championships last month. She is also the first Indian to achieve this feat.

"I am very happy to receive the second car from the god of cricket," said Saina, who was accompanied by her coach Pullela Gopichand.

"I am glad to congratulate Saina and Gopi. This medal means a lot for India and it has not come without hard work, dedication, focus and vision. I congratulate you for making us all feel proud," said Sachin while congratulating other medal winners at London Olympics.

The cars were given away at glittering function attended by sportspersons, film stars and other eminent personalities from various walks of life.
