New Delhi: Feb 4, 2014

 

They are legends in their own domain, but it seems iconic cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has managed to floor ace golfer Tiger Woods when the two greats caught up in the capital on Tuesday.

 

After meeting Tendulkar and his family in New Delhi, Woods wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter that the batting genius was a “cool” guy.

 

“Just met a cricket legend and his family. Sachin Tendulkar @sachin_rt was so cool and loved being welcomed to India,” Tiger wrote on his Twitter handle.

 

Woods met Tendulkar and his family on his arrival at a five star hotel in New Delhi.

 

 

 

While Woods is in town to take part in an exhibition match at a private event at the Delhi Golf Club (DGC), Tendulkar is present to receive Bharat Ratna, the country’s highest civilian honour.

 

Tendulkar, who retired from all forms of cricket in November last year, has been a keen follower of golf.
