KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 27 -- Shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei, fresh from winning a silver medal at the London Olympics, is expected to end his bachelorhood next year.
The world number two is expected to wed former national top women's singles player Wong Mew Choo as both are rumoured to be planning to settle down after courting for more than a decade.
Chong Wei who claimed that he was ready to take the plunge, however, did not give any tentative date or place for the wedding.
"Maybe I will step down next year because there are no big competitions and start planning for the wedding. I am not young anymore," he told Bernama.
Mew Choo, 29, is now a coach at the Bukit Jalil Sports School after she quit competitive badminton last year.
"We have known each other for a long time. Sometimes I hardly have any time to dwell on the relationship so as to focus on my career and during such times it is normal to have misunderstandings," said the former world number one.
