- Bach will serve until 2025 after 93-1 vote in his favour
- Decision on foreign spectators to be taken ‘as soon as possible’
Amid scenes more akin to a totalitarian state, Thomas Bach was re-elected on Wednesday as president of the International Olympic Committee by 93 votes to one after a series of lavish tributes from IOC members.
Bach, who took charge of the Olympic movement in 2013 and will now serve until 2025, immediately set his sights on running a successful Tokyo Olympic Games and guiding the IOC through the social and financial “aftershocks” of a post Covid-19 world as part of his Agenda 2020+5 proposals.
