Gopichand's successor and the game's most charismatic figure in India since Prakash Padukone - he returned to watch childhood friend Anup Sridhar reach the quarter-finals of the world championships.

Bakshi's decision to quit in his teens, just when he was beginning to show glimpses of extraordinary talent, has never been understood.

THE Badminton World Federation (BWF) has denied there was a coup d’etat to topple its president Kang Young Joong or that the world body is being run by an individual.

BWF vice-president Robin Bryant said the decision-making process involves all 24 members of the council and there is no one person who can actually control the proceedings as mentioned by Young Joong.
