According to the report, our national hero, Datuk Wira Lee Chong Wei was named the world’s richest, defeating his personal rival, Lin Dan, a badminton player from China. 

Chong Wei was listed as the richest badminton player, allegedly earning $75 million over the course of his career, followed by Lin Dan, $33 million; Chen Lengthy, $22 million; Pusarla Sindhu, $8.5 million and Saina Nehwal $ 4million. 

The video was made based on a report from an Indian-based sports organization, The Sport Grail, so we’re not sure whether it’s true. 

But hey, we feel like our beloved badminton player deserves it as he has worked hard for Malaysia!
