"I look forward to meet lance armstrong soon and take inspiration!," he wrote.

Yuvraj also thanked all his fans and media for their wishes and respecting his privacy.

"Thank you again to all my friends back home! Thank you to the media for there support and respecting my privacy," he wrote.

"Thank you to (sports minster) ajay maken! mr omar abdullah and mr narendra modi for there kind words!"

"Thank you sahara shree for his support and thinking bout me as his family!".
