“But please give Chong Wei the space and peace of mind to recover…Chong Wei is currently in Taiwan seeking treatment, and I am pleased to inform you that he is responding well to his treatment and is currently resting and recuperating amongst family and close friends,” pleaded Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president Datuk Seri Norza Zakaria in a statement after a post went viral on social media saying Chong Wei was suffering from third-stage nose cancer.

BAM had earlier issued a statement two months ago saying Chong Wei was taking a break from badminton after he had been diagnosed with an unspecific disorder related to the respiratory system.

Chong Wei won the Olympic silver medal three times and is considered one of the greatest sportsman in Malaysia.

He is currently undergoing treatment in Taiwan and is expected to return home after completing his treatment at the end of the month.
