Speaking to reporters in Bangkok on Friday, Lee said he was not at fault and would wait for a BWF panel decision next month.
“I am very confident that this case is not my fault,” Lee told reporters at a news conference for an upcoming exhibition match in Thailand. “I must stay strong. Everybody has been messaging me to stay strong.
“Im waiting to hear good results next month.”
Lee, who won silver medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, faces a two-year ban should he fail with his appeal.
The Malaysian would also be stripped of the silver medal he won at the world championships in August in Copenhagen, the location of the failed test.
Earlier this month the BWF said in a statement: “The world governing body has imposed this suspension due to an Adverse Analytical Finding of a sample taken at the BWF World Championships in August”.
Lee, whose 55 global titles and Olympic silver medals have made him Malaysias leading sportsman, was found to have traces of the banned anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone in his system during the world championships in Denmark.8.03KPhotoPyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay kicks offTokyo marks 1,000 days until 2020 Olympic GamesFed Express eclipses his old foe Rafa againChinese sprinter Su Bingtian and wife hold wedding ceremony in hometownLi Na tastes local delicacy during WTA Wuhan OpenPlayer party held for 2017 WTA Wuhan OpenMost PopularWhats HotBritish, German soldiers play Christmas truce centenary matchHighlightsJames, Love lead Cavaliers over Hornets 97-88Bryant passes Jordan for 3rd on scoring listSoggy Serie A breakthrough for Mancini as Inter triumphHamilton wins BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2014SpecialLi Na retires from tennis17th Asian GamesUS OpenNanjing Youth Olympics…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
