Sachin, who on Saturday dedicated his Bharat Ratna to his mother Rajni, went a step further by dedicating the award to all mothers in India.
"Yesterday, I said this award is for my mother, for all the sacrifices she has made for me. Today I dedicate this award to mothers all across India," he said at a press conference in Mumbai on Sunday.
"There are millions and millions of mothers in India who sacrifice many things for their children. I would like to share my award with them." (Highlights from press conference)
