Thomas Bach re-elected to four more years as IOC president

Sixty-seven-year-old German lawyer, Thomas Bach, was re-elected as International Olympic Committee (IOC) president on Wednesday during an IOC videoconference session. 

Bach, who won fencing gold medal at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, was unopposed. He was backed by nine-three of the ninety-four valid votes cast by his fellow IOC members, with one unidentified voter opposed. 

There were four abstentions. The German will now serve a further four years until 2025. He was originally elected in Buenos Aires in 2013.
