IOC chief Bach presents former UN head Annan with Olympic Order

  • International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach presented former United Nations (UN) secretary-general Kofi Annan with the Olympic Order in Gold. Annan had been awarded the Olympic Order in 2007, but due to his busy schedule he was unable to attend an award ceremony until Thursday when he paid an official visit to the IOC headquarters here. "The Olympic spirit is something that has been with me for a long time," Annan said during the presentation. (Source: IANS)
