London:

Sachin Tendulkar may have retired but it seems tough to keep sports away from the man who gave more than two decades to Indian cricket. A self-confessed tennis fan, the Little Master, who has plenty of time after hanging up his boots, was spotted in stands at Wimbledon, having a discussion with former England skipper Andrew Strauss.

English football legends Sir Bobby Charlton and David Beckham were also seen in the crowd on a day when tennis heavyweights like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams were all in action.

In a week's time, Tendulkar will swap his shiny blazer and formal attire for cricket kits for one last time as he will lead the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) against Shane Warne's Rest of the World in the Lord's bicentenary game, to be played on July 5.
