With reference to news reports regarding the return of Datuk Lee Chong Wei from Taiwan, I had spoken to the 36-year old Malaysian badminton legend on Wednesday and at that point, he still hasn’t received medical clearance.
I’m pleased to update you that Chong Wei has now just been cleared by his medical team to return to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.
On behalf of BAM, I strongly urge members of the media and the Malaysian public in general to respect his privacy and that of his family.
