Coconuts KL's sports coverage: Sure, Malaysian football is not like what it used to be. You’re right, Nicol David is no longer world number one (at the time of writing), and, yes, Lee Chong Wei is still looking for that elusive Olympic gold medal. But that doesn’t mean we don’t love our sports. We are absolutely passionate about sports, so whenever our national team captain curls home a free-kick or every time Goh Liu Ying steps onto the badminton court (OMG, she’s so pretty!), you can be sure we’ll be there with a pen and a notebook in hand - so that we can bring you the latest sports news, not to ask for their autographs, mmkay? Oh, and #MalaysiaBoleh!
