Mumbai:  Recently-retired batting legend Sachin Tendulkar became UNICEF's first brand ambassador for South Asia and is all set to work in promoting hygiene and sanitation in the region.

"Thanks for allowing me to start this wonderful second innings of my life. I'm looking forward to being an ambassador for UNICEF and serve to the best of my ability. This is an innings that is really really important to me, so I will try my best," said Tendulkar.

The batting icon, who has been involved with the global organisation for the last 8-10 years, was named its ambassador for South Asia region for two years.

Tendulkar said it was hard to digest that many people around the world did not have access to clean toilets.

"I was surprised to know that 36 per cent of the world population doesn’t have access to safe and clean toilets. In today's day and age to think about this basic facility not being available to a common man, it is really difficult to digest," he said.
