Datuk Lee Chong Wei (LCW) will be the first Malaysian athlete to have a wax figure displayed at the famous Madame Tussauds Hong Kong

The Madame Tussauds museum in Hong Kong announced that the wax figure of the former national badminton champion is its way of paying homage to the superstar athlete’s impact on the sport.

Lee, who retired in 2019, was ranked the world’s top badminton player for a record 349 weeks and was also recently appointed as Malaysia’s chef de mission for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

He sat through a six-hour detailing session for the wax figure

The museum said that throughout the six-hour sitting session, Lee Chong Wei provided full cooperation and from time to time, he joked around to lighten up the atmosphere.

When asked what delighted him the most during the sitting, Lee Chong Wei shared that he was impressed at how the team “recorded details so meticulously, including the colour of my hair and eyes!”
