Malaysian Badminton Star Lee Chong Wei Plays Down Retirement Talk

KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian badminton player Lee Chong Wei said on Thursday that the progress of his recovery from nose cancer would determine whether he would return to the court.

The former world number one, who topped the singles rankings for 199 consecutive weeks from August 2008 to June 2012, was making his first media appearance since his September diagnosis.

“I love badminton. I just try my very best and I’ll come back soon,” Lee told a press conference in the Malaysian capital on Thursday.

“If my condition is very bad, then I think it’s time I stop. Now I don’t know my condition, right? I must go back to court first,” the three-time Olympic silver medalist added.

Lee thanked the Badminton Association of Malaysia, and said in a Tweet that he was “slowly but surely recovering, and will continue to train to play in the court once again.”

After failing to claim Olympic gold at three consecutive Games, Lee has targeted Tokyo 2020 for a potential final tilt at the title, although he will be 38 years of age by then.
