Andy Hunt is stepping down as British Olympic Association chief executive at the end of the month just six months after he guided the host nation to its most successful Games medal haul in 104 years. Britain won 65 medals at the London 2012 Games and finished third in the medals table behind the United States and China.

"It has been an amazing four years," Hunt said. "I will always be proud to have led Team GB at a home Games and of their fantastic performance. Now, it's the right time to move on."

The BOA chairman, Seb Coe, praised Hunt: "Team GB had the very best facilities, care and preparation in London thanks to the tireless efforts and passion of Andy."
