Many must be wondering why Lee Chong Wei wants to play badminton again after being diagnosed with nose cancer. Yes, he is recovering and is in positive spirits but can his diminutive frame cope with the physically demanding sport - much less enable him to play top-flight badminton again? Chong Wei tells StarSport’s TAN MING WAI the reasons behind his comeback and hopes that playing badminton again will erase the painful memories of his struggles with nose cancer. 

NOSE-cancer survivor Lee Chong Wei is driven to make a comeback in badminton for two good reasons – a desire to compete in his fifth Olympic Games and be the guiding light for the younger generation of players.
