Wuhan: Badminton world number one Lee Chong Wei has admitted his injury at the Thomas Cup in China this week is a blow to his Olympics title bid, where the Malaysian has a last shot at an elusive gold.
"Injury like this can affect mental preparation," a tearful Lee said before flying back to Malaysia Wednesday to have a second MRI scan and treatment on his torn ankle tendon.
"It is still painful... One has to be strong. I know I will be okay. I have to be stronger mentally to do well in the Olympics."
