Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday said that he was scared of breaking down in front of Yuvraj Singh when he met the left-handed batsman in London after his treatment in the United States for a rare germ cell cancer.

"When I went to meet him in London, I was telling my wife [Anjali] that I don't want to break down when I see him. I met him and gave him a tight hug. We enjoyed a meal and from the way he [Yuvraj] ate, I was convinced that he is back on track," Tendulkar told a select gathering during the release of Yuvraj's book "The Test of My Life'.

It was a poignant evening on Tuesday with the likes of Tendulkar, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and latest batting star Virat Kohli recollecting stories and their emotional experience during Yuvraj's fight with cancer.
