Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean stepped down as president of the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) on Monday evening, a post he had held since 1998.

DPM Teo was succeeded by Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin at the SNOC's annual general meeting, which was held at the Swissotel Merchant Court.

Mr Tan was co-opted as a member of the SNOC's executive committee in April last year.

Said Mr Teo in his address: "I thank every one of you very much for your support, for the privilege of knowing you and working with you to take sports to a higher level for Singapore."
