When Lee Chong Wei reached his biggest milestone, the All England, among the first callers on his mobile was the Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. Lee revealed during the press conference that he was honoured to know that the PM had stayed up all night to watch his match live.
From The Star:
“Chong Wei is like my son. He calls me before he plays and if he wins, he’ll call to let me know,” Rosmah Mansor, wife of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. “… my children have grown up. What do I do? I can’t be playing badminton all the time. I can’t accompany my husband all the time. But I’m educated, I’ve got my Master’s. I think I’ve put that aside for a long time. I wasn’t able to contribute because my husband was a minister. I was only doing little things, volunteering here and there. Now I’m in a position to contribute much more than before.”
