The Jalur Gemilang was flown by almost everybody at the arrival hall and as legendary Lee Chong Wei walked in, banners, buntings and posters which were depicting words of encouragement and gratitude towards Chong Wei shot to the sky for maximum visibility.

Chong Wei won a silver medal after a nail-biting match against China’s Lin Dan last Sunday, and he is also an active Twitter user at @Lee_C_Wei.

It was also observed on Twitter that many said that they would have love to join in welcoming the legendary badminton player home, but had to forget doing so due to work and school.
