MONACO: The India-Pakistan tennis duo of Rohan Bopanna and Aisam Ul-Haq Qureshi on Thursday were honoured for their partnership with a Peace and Sport award. The two players featured on the ATP Tour this year wearing warm-up gear with the slogan “Stop War, Start Tennis” to publicize their belief that friendship between India and Pakistan is possible.

When he presented the award, Joel Bouzou, founder of Peace and Sport, appealed to the governments of India and Pakistan to support the players’ project to organize a symbolic tennis match at the Wagah border between India and Pakistan.

“Sport is ready for peace. But will governments rise to this challenge?” he asked.
