Kuala Lumpur: Shortly after the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) announced last Saturday that the Malaysian badminton legend, Lee Chong Wei was diagnosed with early stage nose cancer, well wishes began pouring in from current and former badminton players, badminton fans and politicians.

Lee’s greatest nemesis on the badminton court, two-time Olympic champion Lin Dan, already told reporters during the Nanjing World Championships in August that badminton competition would be incomplete without Lee Chong Wei, and he hoped his “lifetime opponent” would recover soon.

“First of all, I wish Chong Wei a speedy recovery. It’s really not important anymore when he could return to the sport, instead, his health is the most important thing right now,” said Lin Dan.

Lee’s good friend, badminton legend from Indonesia and the 2004 Athens Olympics gold medalist, Taufik Hidayat also wished Lee a good recovery through his social media page below.

Peter Gade, one of the 4 Heavenly Kings of badminton also posted on his own social media page saying: “Get Well soon, my friend”.

Below are some get well wishes from some of Lee Chong Wei’s best pals and fans.

Meanwhile, BadmintonPlanet.com would like to urge all badminton fans or news outlets to stop the spread of false news, claiming they have pictures of Lee’s current hospital stay. Those pictures that are circulating on social media were taken in 2014 when Lee was admitted to hospital for his thigh injury treatment. Please kindly respect the privacy of Lee and STOP spreading misleading news on all platforms.

Lastly, BadmintonPlanet.com would like to wish Lee Chong Wei to keep fighting and keep believing!
