On Monday, Indian cricketing legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni received the country's third highest civilian award, Padma Bhushan, from President Ram Nath Kovind at investiture ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Dhoni, who attended the ceremony in his Lieutenant Colonel uniform, marched like an army personnel and collected his Padma Bhushan award from the Indian President.

As luck would have it, Dhoni received the prestigious award on the same day when he launched pacer Nuwan Kulasekara for a whacking six over the long-on to end India's 28-year-old wait and helped his team lift the coveted World Cup trophy in front of a jam-packed Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in 2011.

36-year-old Dhoni is the second Indian cricketer after Kapil Dev to receive this honour.
