Japan’s Momota wins first title since car crash

Two-time world champion Kento Momota won his first BWF title since a road accident last year after the Japanese beat Denmark’s Anders Antonsen in the final of the Indonesia Masters on Sunday. Momota was ruled out of competition for some time as he fractured his nose and right eye socket, and sustained multiple lacerations to his face after the van he was travelling in, in Malaysia, crashed into a truck in last year.
