President Pratibha Patil on Friday congratulated Sachin Tendulkar for becoming the highest Test run-getter in the world.

"You have given joy to countless Indians with your batting," the President said in her congratulatory message to the master batsman.

Tendulkar surpassed former West Indian captain Brian Lara's record of 11,953 runs on the opening day of the second cricket Test against Australia in Mohali.
