Watching sports events can be very exciting and it’s even more fun to watch it with friends and family. Everyone can cheer together and give live commentary of what is currently happening on screen.
Sport fans are not the only ones giving reviews and live commentary of what’s happening in the games, legends can do it too. In fact, Lee Chong Wei and Tan Boon Heong have something to say about the recent Badminton tournament.
The 31st SEA Games is currently in full swing, happening right now in Hanoi, Vietnam as well since yesterday. Also happening is the Thomas Uber Cup in Bangkok, Thailand. 2019 SEA Games Gold medalist Lee Zii Jia managed to defeat Champion of the All-Japan Badminton Championship, Kento Momota at the tournament.
Malaysian Badminton legends Dato Lee Chong Wei and Tan Boon Heong gave their thoughts on the tournament on TikTok Live. The video was posted by @laureaaurora which has gained 368k views, 35.7k likes and 300 comments.
The 39-year-old asked Boon Heong how did Kento play during the tournament to which he jokingly replied, “there’s no strings on his racket”. He later added that Kento’s hands were still stiff after coming from a cold place.
Netizens seem to enjoy the commentary by the two legends. Many commented that it’s a good thing that the former badminton players are considered legends to be commenting on someone’s performance that way.

Lee Zii Jia who bested the Japanese player in the final Thomas Cup Group D tie, also had something to say about his opponent. The 24-year-old believes he will rise up again after this defeat. “He was not at his best, but this is normal for a player. It was not his day. He may be struggling now but I believe that he will enjoy a comeback soon,” he said.
