New Delhi: Indian skipper Virat Kohli has paid emotional tribute to his former Royal Challengers Bangalore team-mate and South African batsman AB de Villiers, who recently bid adieu to all forms of international cricket.

"Wish you all the best in everything that you do my brother," Kohli wrote.

Kohli, who also posted a picture of himself and de Villiers along with the tweet, further praised his RCB team-mate for changing the way of batting in the international cricket.

Few days back, Kohli also dubbed de Villiers' gravity-defying boundary catch during RCB's 14-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash as a `spiderman stuff` while adding that the normal human beings don't do such things.

On May 23, de Villiers posted a video of himself wherein he announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket with immediate effect, thus putting an end to his 14-year illustrious career.
