Tey Seu Bock who had been coaching Lee Zii Jia all throughout the All England tournament was nowhere to be seen on the television screen on the day of the final.

He later revealed the reason why he wasn’t coaching Lee in the final: “I was unable to join as I was really sick because of something I ate (food poisoning). I forgot all my pain when I watched him play. I am just so proud of him.”

“He knocked out world No. 1 (Kento Momota) and world No. 2 (Viktor Axelsen) and that surely speaks volume of his ability. Even if others were there, he would have shown the same fighting spirit,” he added.
