Yuvraj Singh on Wednesday refused to compare his battle with cancer with that of Lance Armstrong saying for him just getting back would be a big achievement.

“I can’t compare much. For me Lance is a real-life hero. He is a great sportsman and his achievements in life are great. To me, just to recuperate and get back would be a big achievement.

Lance Armstrong was very inspiring. 5-6 years back I was reading his book and left it midway for some reason. I had to complete it this way may be. He had similar cancer but his was in the last stage and mine was detected at early stage,” he said.

“I don’t know what I would do in future. I am going to work hard. Earlier, I always felt that I want that India logo back on my forehead. Right now, I just want to be back, I don’t know what I will do after that but I will be back very soon,” he said.
