Letter of Condolences from IOC President Jaques Rogge

Dear President,

I was very sad to hear that His Majesty King George Tupou V has passed away.

He was a great leader and he contributed greatly to the promotion of Olympism in your country.

In the name of the Olympic Movement and in my personal name, I send you my warmest condolences.


With my best regards,

Jacques Rogge
