Lee Chong Wei will become the first Malaysian athlete to join the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong wax museum.
The Malaysian badminton hero shared the news on his social media accounts on Wednesday.
"I'm so honoured to be the first Malaysian athlete to join Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.
"A special shout-out to the team who were extremely patient and detailed during the sitting session. It was definitely a new experience for me.
"My wax figure will be unveiled in the second quarter of 2020" wrote the three-time Olympic silver medallist.
The Hong Kong branch, located at the Peak Tower on Hong Kong Island, houses nearly 100 wax figures of internationally known personalities, with Asian figures taking up more than a third of the total.
The other Madame Tussauds branches in Asia are in Shanghai, China, and Bangkok, Thailand.
