New Delhi:  Yuvraj Singh's father Yograj Singh spoke to NDTV after his son returned to India after receiving a three-month treatment for cancer.

Yuvraj returned to India on Monday morning after receiving treatment for rare germ cell cancer in Boston that has been his toughest and biggest opponent for three months.

Sporting a black jacket and a red cap, the 30-year-old landed at the Indira Gandhi International Airport this morning from London and headed to his home in Gurgaon. His mother Shabnam Singh was there to receive him.

Yograj said that he's happy to see his son emerge as a winner. "Don't know how to thank u all. I am thankful to the god, to the people of this country. You prayed for my child and he's come back as a winner. I am proud of him and I love him a lot," he said.

His father Yograj Singh spoke to NDTV and said he's happy to see his son emerge as a winner. "Don't know how to thank u all. I am thankful to the god, to the people of this country. You prayed for my child and he's come back as a winner. I am proud of him and I love him a lot," he said.

"He has come back hale and hearty. I cry sometimes because of this happiness," he added.

When asked about what gave Yuvraj the strength to fight against the ailment, Yograj said: "The strength comes from god. I have always taught him to live fearlessly and not fear death. I instilled this in him since the beginning. These things have to be inducted in a child. Life is full of a lot of troubles and one has to keep fighting them at all steps."

"When you believe in god, he gives you the strength. When you make death your friend and show the world that you are here to do more great work, the universe stands with you."

When asked when he would be meeting his son since he was not there at the airport, Yograj said: "I want to meet Yuvraj in person where there is no one else except for him, me and God. I didn't want to do it publically."

"People like Yuvraj Singh are not born every day. He knew about his health during the World Cup but he played and won the title. It's his spirit that gave him strength. I salute him and am very proud of him," he added.
