I'd like to pay tribute to Tessa's excellent work on the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Not only did she play a vital role in the winning bid team but she laid the foundations for a successful Games, which was recognised in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours.

She took on both roles with her usual enthusiasm and expertise.
