A viral image claiming Sachin Tendulkar said that he has never seen anyone like Prophet Mohammed there will never be another one, is false.

The post is viral with a picture caption that reads, ''I have not seen such a great man as Prophet Mohammed, nor will a great man like him will ever be born now - Sachin Tendulkar''
(Original text in Hindi:''मैंने प्रोफेट मुहम्मद जैसे शख्सियत न देखि है, और न कभी उनके जैसा महान इंसान अब जन्म लेगा। - सचिन तेंदुलकर'')
