New Delhi: Yearning to see Sachin Tendulkar play, Olympic and World champion sprinter Usain Bolt on Wednesday said he can relate to the Indian cricket icon when it comes to dedication and aggression.

Asked about the qualities he admires in Tendulkar, Bolt said, “Tendulkar is obviously dedicated.

“He is aggressive but calculated and knows how to make runs. He (Tendulkar) also plays for the fans ... really similar to what I do,” Bolt told PTI in an e-mail interview.

Tendulkar recently met tennis great Roger Federer during the ongoing Wimbledon Championships in London and Bolt said he would be game for a similar meeting with the Indian.“I hope to be able to watch him play sometime in the future but I don't have any plans to meet him at the moment.” — PTI
