Chinese badminton star and two-time Olympic champion Lin Dan took to social media on Tuesday to demand an estimated four million yuan (about 588,200 US dollars) owed to him by his club, Yueyu.

In a post on Weibo, one of China’s biggest social platforms, the 33-year-old five-time world champion said he and six other players had not been paid since joining the club, based in Heyuan, in south China's Guangdong Province, in early 2016.
