“I would be confident in giving @thehughjackman , maybe an 18-0 lead, and I bet I would still win,” @viktoraxelsen told @olympicchannel . “Badminton training is actually really brutal.” 🏸
The world champion and Rio bronze medallist badminton player refused to accept actor Hugh Jackman’s apology.
The movie star said that he’d most like to play badminton as an Olympic sport because ‘there are not many injuries’ and ‘it’s not ridiculous training’.
Jackman later conceded it was probably ‘brutal’ training. Viktor has now invited the Australian to a training session in Denmark to find out.
“I have read about his training regime,” said Axelsen. “I think badminton would be a great way to do it as well.”
What do you say, Hugh?
