Badminton star rest­ing

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

MALAYSIAN badminton star Lee Chong Wei has shown he’s a “true fighter” af­ter treat­ment for nose can­cer but has put pub­lic ap­pear­ances on hold.

Badminton As­so­ci­a­tion of Malaysia pres­i­dent Norza Zakaria said the for­mer world No.1 was look­ing well de­spite un­der­go­ing “tough” chemo­ther­apy and pro­ton ther­apy in Tai­wan.

Lee had flagged a me­dia ap­pear­ance af­ter his re­turn to Malaysia on Sun­day, but Norza said the 35-year-old needed to rest to strengthen his im­mune sys­tem.
