GEORGE TOWN: The nation has lost one of its sporting greats in the form of the affable Datuk Eddy Choong, who has passed away at 82.

Way before the nation's adoration for current superstar Datuk Lee Chong Wei began, Choong was Malaysia's golden boy as he dominated the badminton world from the 1950s to 1960s. He retired with the distinction of winning four All-England singles titles.
