He was quoted by The Star as saying,

“As his opponent and friend, I hope that he will recover soon. His absence from the World Championships and the Asian Games will be a huge loss to the men’s singles event.”

“I hope that he will recover and return to competitions as soon as possible.”

Well, we hope that our star badminton player gets all the rest that he needs so he can return to the badminton court in full form! Get well soon, Datuk!
