He wrote on social media platform Weibo, "From 2000 to 2020, after 20 years, I have to say goodbye to the national team. It is very difficult to speak it out."

It is also being said that Dan submitted a formal retirement application few days ago, with the Chinese badminton national team accepting it. He won a hat-trick of world titles between 2006-09, and is regarded as a legend.
