Badminton player Lee Yong Dae who won the mixed doubles gold revealed his dilemma about his infamous wink gesture to thank his fans for their support.

He expressed, “At the Beijing Olympics, right after I did the wink gesture to thank my fans, I got around 1000 requests for me to wink again. I think I must have winked at least 100 over times since then. Now I have spasms in the lower part of my eye.” His words made everyone present understand the “pain” and “torture” that comes along with his high popularity and profile.
