Badminton hero Lee Chong Wei will received his RM300,000 for bagging the Olympic silver medal in Beijing recently.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will hand over the cheque to him in Penang later today. He will also receive a pension of RM3,000 per month beginning September.
Another good news for our hero is that, the Penang State Government will confer him with a 'Datukship'.
Wow! He will be second after Datuk Nicol Ann David to receive the honour this year from the Penang Government.
Parents... encourage your kids in sports! Who knows, one of them could be a Datuk at the age of 18!
