Thomas Bach has been re-elected President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after receiving a unanimous backing from the Session to serve a final four-year term.



Bach who was the only candidate on the ballot box, earned 93 votes during the IOC’s second virtual Session held on Wednesday. There were four abstentions but no one voted against him.


The German lawyer, the ninth IOC President who was elevated to the top job in the Olympic Movement in 2013, will serve in the role until 2025.


Bach will begin his last four-year stint at the helm of the organisation after the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games end on the 8th of August.
