Cancer-Hit Star Shuttler Lee Chong Wei Hoping To Make Comeback
Malaysian badminton star Lee Chong Wei has said he is recovering well and hopes to make a comeback following nose cancer treatment in Taiwan, a report said last fortnight. The world number five and three-time Olympic silver medalist also posted pictures on social media of himself and his wife smiling and holding their children to mark his 36th birthday last fortnight.
Lee returned to Malaysia on October 7th after treatment for early-stage nose cancer in Taiwan, but he has put public appearances on hold to focus on his recovery. In comments published in the New Straits Times newspaper, Lee said that “my health is my main priority right now. “The recovery process has been good so far but I still need rest. Once I am given the green light to make a comeback, I will.” “I thank everyone who encouraged and stood by me in my most difficult time,” he added.
