All England Champion Lee Zii Jia revealed that one of the main things which he learned from his idol Lee Chong Wei was the spirit to never give up.

In an interview with Fly TV, he said, “…(What) we always see from Datuk Lee Chong Wei is (that) he never gives up. Although he always fights for the Olympics he (could) never get the gold medal and in the world championship he never got the world champion  (title) but he’s still always fighting for that title.

“So although he is already a legend for us, he’s still fighting for that title. So I think that spirit is a thing that I learned from him.”
