Lee Chong Wei haven’t decided on retirement yet

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s number one badminton player Datuk Lee Chong Wei has not decided on retirement. He acknowledged that there were speculations about his retirement as he was absent from training.

The three-time Olympic silver medallist insisted that he would announce his plans on his own terms.

“No, no. There’s no decision made yet,” Chong Wei told the Star Online today.

“Just because I’ve been absent from training, everyone is trying to speculate.
