London: A Motion was laid in the House of Commons in the United Kingdom on Monday congratulating batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on his "magnificent" career.
The Early Day Motion, moved by Indian-origin MP Keith Vaz, said that Tendulkar served as an inspiration for millions around the world and recognised his "selfless dedication" to the sport.
"This motion is a fitting tribute to such an exceptional batsman. Tendulkar is adored almost as much in the UK as he is India so it is only right that Parliament pays tribute to him," Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP said.
There is no debate on early day motion.
The Indian batting legend drew curtains on his 24-year-long illustrious career on Saturday after playing his landmark 200th Test against the West Indies.
On that day, Tendulkar was chosen for Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award.
