Malaysia's silver medallist Olympian was warmly welcomed home at the KL International Airport yesterday.
Waving flags and banners, over 400 fans gathered at the airport as early as 4.30am to wait for his arrival to show their appreciation for putting up a good fight in Sunday's badminton final.
Among those at the airport were a delegation from the Youth and Sports Ministry, as well as students from Bukit Jalil Sports School who described Chong Wei as their "idol".
Chong Wei thanked everyone for their support "but I am disappointed not to bring home the gold."
