Sachin Tendulkar will return to India with specially designed shoes to protect his injured toe, it is learnt.
According to sources close to the batting genius, Tendulkar was scheduled to see a podiatrist in London on Wednesday. Dr James Calder, a UK-based Orthopedic Surgeon, who examined him on Monday, is believed to have referred his case to Anne-Marie O'Connor.
O'Connor is one of the leading sports podiatrists in the UK, providing podiatry and gait analysis to many top athletes. She uses video technology to analyse running and walking patterns and prescribes orthotics (foot protection).
