New Delhi, May 3 : Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday accepted the Indian Olympic Association’s (IOA) invitation to be one of the goodwill ambassador for the Indian contingent at this year’s Summer Olympics to be held in the Brazilian seaside city of Rio de Janeiro.

Tendulkar would now join Bollywood actor Salman Khan and Ace Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra to become the third goodwill ambassador.

The IOA’s decision to invite Tendulkar and Bindra as one of the goodwill ambassador came after the 50-year-old actor’s appointment left the sporting fraternity divided, with London Olympics bronze-medallist Yogeshwar Dutt and legendary sprinter Milkha Singh questioning the move.

Meanwhile, those in support of Salman believe that his selection would give a glamour quotient to the Indian team’s presence at the Olympics and would also help in drawing maximum attention from the masses for the Games.
