Chinese trolls infuriated by loss to Taiwan

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Chinese trolls infuriated by loss to Taiwan” – below is their description.

Taiwan has taken the opportunity of winning Olympic badminton gold to subtly assert their nationhood, as Chinese nationalists vent their fury online.

Chinese Taipei’s Lee Yang and Wang Chi-lin beat Liu Yuchen and Li Junhui of China in the men’s doubles badminton gold medal match on Saturday.

It was Chinese Taipei’s first ever gold medal in badminton, one of the sports China is most dominant in.

China’s state media reportedly cut off the broadcasting of the medal ceremony to avoid Taiwan’s “National Flag Anthem”, which has the same melody as the Taiwanese national anthem but different lyrics.

    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
