Last week cricketer Virat Kohli who turned 31, wrote a heart warming letter to his 15-year-old self.

He wrote in detail about the things he wished he could tell his late father Prem Kohli.

"Tell Dad you love him. A lot. Tell him today. Tell him tomorrow. Tell him more often," Kohli wrote in his letter which he also posted on social media.

The cricketer also shared some important life advice.

'You will fail. Everyone does. Just promise yourself that you will never forget to rise. And if at first you don't, try again,' he added.
