KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - National No. 1 Lee Chong Wei says he is not the man behind a sex video that has gone viral.

"It's not me," he said on Tuesday (Feb 13).

Saying that he is not amused by it at all, Lee intends lodge a police report to clear his name.

"My movie is coming up and this is some of the ways that people try to bring disrepute to my name," said the 35-year-old, who is married to Wong Mew Choo.

"I'll lodge a police report. I want to clear my name and I want the police to get the culprit behind this."

The life of the three-time Olympic Games silver medallist will be depicted in a movie, Lee Chong Wei: Rise Of The Legend, that will be hitting the cinemas next month.

"I'm used to this. People always try to paint a negative image when you are at the top. I will not let it affect me," he added.

The Malaysian is gearing up to defend his title at the All-England in Birmingham next month.
