In a week’s time, Sachin Tendulkar will travel to Shanghai in China, where a rare honour awaits him. On April 15, the cricket legend will be a part of the Laureus World Sports Award, an annual award ceremony which is considered as Oscars of sports.

Tendulkar, who was brand ambassador of the 2015 World Cup, will also be inducted in the Laureus Sports Academy, a virtual hall of fame of the organisation. It will be Tendulkar’s first-ever visit to the prestigious annual gathering of high-achieving sportspersons of the world and to China as well. “I’m excited to be a part of the event in Shanghai. It will be my first time at the Laureus Awards and also my first time in Shanghai,“ Tendulkar told media in India. Tendulkar will be among about 100 top sportspersons of past and present who have confirmed participation. Among them are China’s NBA star Yao Ming, Dutch football legend Ruud Gullit, Romanian gymnast great Nadia Comaneci, Romanian tennis legend Ilie Nastase, nine-time Olympic champion Mark Spitz of the US, and retired Spanish footballer Charles Puyol. Among cricketers, West Indies’s Michael Holding and former Australia skipper Steve Waugh will attend the event.
