KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) will be carrying a live telecast of the All-England Open Badminton Championships 2019 finals from 7.30pm Sunday (March 10) to enable Malaysians watch the men's doubles final involving Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo said RTM HD Sports via TV1 would be airing the event from 7.30pm.

"Tq. I have checked. TV1 and RTM HD Sports will air Live Badminton All England tonight on March 10, 7.30pm @SyedSaddiq," he said in a posting on Twitter Sunday (March 10).

He tweeted in response to an enquiry from Twitter user Hormat Sikit Darjah 3 @scromix, who wanted to know whether local television stations would be airing the Malaysian doubles pair in the final live.

Earlier, Aaron-Wooi Yik proved they were giant slayers when they defeated Indonesia's Fajar Alfian-Muhammad Rian Ardianto in the semi-finals.

In the match at Arena Birmingham, the national pair subdued the Indonesian pair, ranked ninth in the world, 12-21, 22-20, 21-19. – Bernama
