Dubai. France’s Université Ecole Superieure Robert de Sorbonne conferred an honorary PhD in sports to former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh during a convocation ceremony. Harbhajan could not attend the event as he is currently in the ‘bio-bubble’ of Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL. The university awards honorary doctorates to eminent personalities from various fields, including achievements in the field of sports.
Harbhajan, 41, said that if an institution gives respect, then you accept it very politely. If I have been awarded the University Honorary Sports Doctorate degree, it is because I play cricket and people have given their love and affection for it. I am honored to have this degree.
