Former England captain Nasser Hussain tells us how he has always admired Sachin Tendulkar, both as a player scoring thousands of runs and as a person doing it under immense pressure.

He recalls how he first came up against Tendulkar in 1989 and ever since then, was full of admiration for a man he says is arguably the best batsman the world has ever seen.

Jokingly, he adds that he has "no fond memories" of playing against him due to his prolific feats of run-scoring against England.

Talking at a press conference at Lord's to launch Tendulkar's autobiography, he gives us an insight into what it was like playing against Tendulkar.

Looking back on his time with Yorkshire, he chats about what that spell will have done for the Indian legend and pays tribute to a batsman who was a complete player - someone who could bat "like a machine" and grind out hundreds or go out and "take the mickey" and smack the ball to all parts.
