Model Answer:

Dear Ram,
I'm really shocked to hear about your leg injury! Hope you're getting the best treatment, and I pray to almighty for your speedy recovery.

By the way, I really have some good news to share. guess what? Yes, my dear, our team won the football league final mate! The best part is that we claimed the victory trophy by defeating JPS Bulls, which is considered to be one of the toughest teams.

Honestly, the conditions on the day were not very favourable. Especially, without you, the morale of the team was a little down. However,  good team coordination gave us an edge over the opponents. Our team was able to maintain the lead by two goals till the end of the mateh.

It was a wonderful feeling to conclude the mateh with shining victory and the spectators cheered us with huge applause. Of course, we missed your presence.

I hope to see you back in ground once you are fully recovered.

Yours truly,
