He said: "I am very happy to be here to attend the 20th Commonwealth Games to support Team Singapore.

"I had a tour of the premises and facilities. Everything looks very organised, facilities are first rate, the athletes look very comfortable and are settling down well. They are in very good spirits, raring to go for the competition.
