There is no news yet on the results of national shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei's B sample test, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said.

"I have no news about the result yet... If the result is out, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) will list the information on its system which can only be retrieved by BWF officials because there will be a password," Khairy said in a report by Bernama yesterday.

The minister added that the decision to engage a prominent sports lawyer to assist Chong Wei's doping case was not a special privilege accorded to the shuttler.

Khairy said the cost of engaging the services of the lawyer would be borne by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), not the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

INCHEON: The slumped shoulders and blank look on Lee Chong Wei’s face say it all as China’s Lin Dan shattered the world No. 1’s hopes of bagging the men’s singles gold in his final Asian Games appearance.

Olympic champion Lin Dan was just too good as he won the semi-final blockbuster 22-20, 12-21, 21-9 in 72 minutes at the Gyeyang Gymnasium. World champion Chen Long kept his part of the bargain to make it an all-Chinese final by beating Wei Nan of Hong Kong 21-6, 21-10 in the other semi-final.

Sunday was perhaps the last time badminton supporters will get to see the two clash at the Asiad and fans were already lining up at sunrise at the entrance to buy tickets.
