General
RETURN TO COMPETITION
He took a six-month break from the sport after defending his title at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. The break provoked media rumours that he would retire from the sport, but he insisted it was for personal reasons. "I had a very wonderful time with my family. In the past 12 years' career, I had little time staying with them." He eventually returned to the sport and the Badminton World Federation [BWF] granted him a wild-card entry to the 2013 World Championships where he gained a record fifth singles title. (news.xinhuanet.com, 04 Aug 2013; news.xinhuanet.com, 05 Aug 2013)

He donated 5,000 Chinese yuan [approx 750 USD] to help with the aftermath of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake and conducted a series of further donations when he returned to China from competing overseas. (sz.bendibao.com, 22 Nov 2010)

ATTACK
In April 2008 he defended himself against media reports that he punched his coach Ji Xinpeng during a pre-Olympic training camp. Journalists reported seeing him attack his coach after a practice match, described his behaviour as intolerable and called for him to be dropped from the national team. He said the claims were false, pleaded with fans not to believe the reports and said the journalists were affecting the team's preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games. "I feel confused and annoyed about where the media found such a made-up and untrue story." (sport.guardian.co.uk, 11 Apr 2008)

PUBLIC CLASH
In January 2008 he had a public clash with Korea's Chinese coach Li Mao during the final of the Korea Super Series tournament in Seoul. He exchanged words with Li after a disputed line call and threatened the coach by raising his racket above his head. The two were separated by coaches and teammates. He refused to apologise for his behaviour claiming that Li had used foul and abusive language to attack him and the China team. China's Table Tennis and Badminton Administrative Centre [TBAC] backed him, saying his reaction was understandable if he had been provoked. (chinadaily.com.cn, 11 Apr 2008)
