Chong Wei will resume training on Tuesday while waiting for the verdict on his doping case.
SEPANG: Malaysian badminton ace Datuk Lee Chong Wei, who arrived from Amsterdam early this morning, would resume training tomorrow while waiting for the verdict on his doping case.
"The hearing has ended; I'll cool down a bit as I've waited for six months and need to wait just three weeks more.
"I'll continue court training and see how it goes," he told reporters when met at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here today.
Chong Wei, who was accompanied by Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) general manager, Kenny Goh, and council member Jadadish Chandra, appeared calm and more relaxed compared to his demeanour before departing for London on April 8.
He smiled when asked about his hope for the hearing, saying, "What would you all hope for? Certainly my hope is for a good outcome."
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old said he was satisfied with lawyer Mike Morgan who represented Malaysia for him at the eight-hour hearing held in a room at Saturn Hotel Sheraton Amsterdam Airport.
The process started from 9.25am (3.25pm Malaysia time) on Saturday before a three-man independent panel from the Badminton World Federation (BWF) comprising two members from Europe and one from India.
Chong Wei, a silver medalist at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympic Games, was suspended by the BWF after testing positive for dexamethasone at the World Championships in Copenhagen in Aug 2014.
