Rio Olympics 2016: Sachin Tendulkar all set to gift a swanky BMW to PV Sindhu for scripting history

New Delhi: Wishes have been pouring in from all corners for ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu who created history at the Rio Olympics 2016 by becoming the first Indian shuttler to bag a Silver medal.

Several organisations have already announced cash rewards for the 21-year-old who settled for silver against World No. 1 Carolina Marin in women's singles final.

Meanwhile, Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar will be handing over the keys of a swanky BMW to the Hyderabadi girl on August 28.

The Master Blaster did something similar in 2012 when he gifted a BMW to Saina Nehwal after she bagged a bronze medal at London Olympics.

On the same occasion, he presented a Maruti Swift to Sindhu, who had won the girls' singles title in the Asian Youth Under-19 Championship in 2012.

The BMW car is being sponsored by Tendulkar's close friend and former cricketer V Chamundeswaranath.
