'Time to relax' for Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar says he "never thought the reaction would be like this" after being overwhelmed by tributes following his retirement from cricket.

The 40-year old Indian reveals he is retiring due to his "body complaining" about the rigours of international cricket and feels that it is time for him "to relax a bit".

Known as the 'little master', Tendulkar's final Test against the West Indies came 24 years and one day after his Test debut.
