Indian Cricket twitterati pays tribute to `Missile Man`


New Delhi: Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli has expressed condolence over the sudden demise of former president A.P.J Abdul Kalam, saying that he is a role model for many people and will keep inspiring the coming generations.

“A role model for so many, a visionary leader and a person with an indomitable spirit, RIP APJ Abdul Kalam Sir,” Kohli wrote on Twitter.

Renowned cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle also paid his tribute saying, “Not just a leader but a cult hero. A great President. A great Indian #RIPKalam.”

Kalam, 84, passed away in Shillong earlier today after he was admitted to a hospital in the city.

The former president collapsed during a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management. He was in a critical condition and had been admitted to the city’s Bethany Hospital.

Kalam served as the 11th President on India from 2002 to 2007. (ANI)
