Viktor Axelsen just couldn’t believe that he won the Olympic gold medal.

When interviewed by DR, an emotional Axelsen said, “Oh, my God. I can’t stop crying.”

“I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it at all. It’s crazy. It was a boy’s dream. I still remember standing inside the Odense Badminton Club and hitting the shuttles up to myself while saying ‘This is the Olympics final’. Now I’ve freaking done it.”
