Renowned Malaysian shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei is making full use of the movement control order (MCO) by teaching his kids to play badminton at home.

In a video uploaded to Instagram on April 11, Lee appears to have cleared the furniture at a hall near his living room, making space for a badminton net.

He can be seen guiding his two sons Kingston, 7, and Terrance, 4, in the sport he is all too familiar with.

The post, which has racked up over 300,000 views so far, came a day after prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the extension of the MCO.

“I think it’s a good yet difficult decision to extend the MCO to 28 April. All must take good care physically and mentally. Forget your frustration and fidgeting, and look at the bright side of spending more time with family. Remember, there are many people out there who suffer more than us, ” he wrote in the post, accompanied with the hashtag #badmintonwiththekids.
