Copenhagen: Denmark’s World No. 4 Viktor Axelsen participated in light badminton drills on Sunday, as a step forward in his return from right ankle surgery.
Right after Badminton World Federation has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Thomas Cup Finals which was scheduled to be held in Aarhus, Denmark, from October 3, 2020, to October 11, 2020, Axelsen immediately underwent the surgery to repair his right ankle.
He posted a statement on his social media pages on September 16, 2020.
My right ankle has been nagging me on and off for some time now. After consulting with several experts and physiotherapists, I decided to go through a minor ankle surgery today. Everything went well and there is no doubt that this was the right thing to do. Thanks to the professional staff at Hvidovre Hospital who helped me today. Take care guys, I’ll be back soon on court again 💪”
