It's no drama says Dr Ramlan

Lee being helped out of the court after he suffered cramps.
National Sports Institute (NSI) chief executive officer Dr Ramlan Aziz stressed the cramps suffered by world No. 1 shuttler Lee Chong Wei was a genuine case due to the lack of ventilation at the Tianhe Sports Center in Guangzhou, China.
The air-conditioning in the hall was switched off during the second set in the World Championships men’s singles final between host player Lin Dan and Lee.

Lee, who had won 21-16 in the first set before going down 21-12 in the second set, was trailing 20-17 before calling it quits.

Lee had to stop play earlier and was attended to by the tournament doctor. He, however, continued to play only to retire due to cramps. Later he was rushed to the hospital and was put on intravenous drips. Lee was discharged late Sunday night.

“I cannot understand when people say it was another drama. No it wasn’t,” said Dr Ramlan.
