Sachin Tendulkar was the First sports person to be honoured by Bharat Ratna Award. Tendulkar, who retired from international cricket on November 16 last year, became the youngest recipient and the first ever sportsperson to receive the award, the highest civilian honour.

Sachin received the honour in the presence of his wife Dr Anjali and daughter Sara at the Rashtrapathi Bhavan.
