Punch Gunalan’s death a great loss

The passing of a legend

Most Malaysians of my generation will remember the late Datuk Punch Gunalan him for his brave and spirited encounter with badminton ace Rudy Hartono of Indonesia in the Thomas Cup Finals in 1970.Although he loss that match but the memories of that highly exciting  match still remain vividly in our minds.

The untimely demise of this badminton legend is indeed a great loss to the nation especially badminton. Malaysians in general and badminton fans in particular are deeply grieved by his death.

His contributions to the nation especially in badminton will never be forgotten for generations to come. He was a great and patriotic Malaysian, an example for all young sports men and women in the country.
Punch Gunalan was a hero who brought much glory and honour to Malaysia at the prime of his life. He may have left us but will continue to live on as a legend in the hearts of many.
We offer our deepest sympathies to his family and may his soul rest in peace.
