Tired of replying to queries regarding his illness, Yuvraj Singh, recovering from a rare germ cell cancer between his lungs, on Tuesday said that constant questions about his health make him feel he is still unwell.

"Don't ask me about my illness. You make me feel as if I am still sick," Yuvraj said in a brief interaction with the reporters at his residence here on Tuesday.

Yuvraj arrived in the city on Tuesday and headed straight to his home from the airport.

Determined to get over his illness soon, Yuvraj thanked his fans, friends and well-wishers for supporting him during his hour of crisis.

"It was hard for me to digest when I was diagnosed (with cancer) but that's the way life is. I've fought a tough battle, it's been gruelling for me and my family. I am thankful to (the) fans for the support I got throughout my illness.

"I am happy to be back home, to a place where I was brought up," he said.

Yuvraj added that cycling legend Lance Armstrong was his inspiration while he was undergoing treatment in the USA.

"I hope I can also inspire others," said Yuvraj.

Asked how soon he could return to the field, Yuvraj said, "Practice will have to wait."

At the moment, meeting friends and visiting a few places is on his agenda.

When asked which places he would like to visit, he refused to give away details, saying, "Then you (media) people will not spare me there also."

On Sachin Tendulkar's nomination to the Rajya Sabha, Yuvraj said, "Sachin will now have to be addressed as 'Good Morning Sir'."

Yuvraj returned to India last month after undergoing treatment in the United States for more than two months.
