Datuk Wira Lee Chong Wei has done it again – giving us all the feels with his latest Instagram post for his wife

On Valentine's Day, 14 February, Lee took to Instagram to share side-by-side photos of him and his wife, Datin Wong Mew Choo, playing badminton over the years.

"There is a Chinese saying that goes, 'Love birds who love each other will tend to look more like each other as time passed (sic) by'. I did not believe [it] till I saw these photos," he wrote.

"We do have the same badminton 'pattern'. Of course, I don't want to look like her, she is far too beautiful for me."

The national hero shared that during their courtship, he would joke about needing to win international titles or she would never "accept his face"

"But deep down, I know she would love me even though I'm a nobody. After all, we started courtship when I was cleaning court in [Bukit Jalil Sports School]," he wrote, adding that his wife has become the most important person in his family's life.

"During my last fight with cancer, I told myself I don't want to die so early because I don't want her to cry for me," he shared.

The couple have been married since November 2012.

He ended his post by thanking her, "No one knows how much you suffered for me except for God and me. I thank you and I love you so much"

Since then, his post has received more than 90,000 likes, as fans gushed over the couple.
