On his 40th birthday, Sachin Tendulkar thanked his well-wishers in a simple cake-cutting ceremony in Kolkata on Wednesday morning. Tendulkar cut a five-kg cake with his wife Anjali feeding him the first piece. Soon after, both happily posed for photographers.

Kolkata is one of Tendulkar's most liked cities. Whenever in the City of Joy, he makes it a must to visit the famous Kali Mandir in Kalighat, South Kolkata.

"I am touched by the gesture shown by the fans. As I was walking in my hotel today, I met Anil Kumble, who wished me and said 40 was just a number. I am inspired by his words," Tendulkar said.
