Berlin (dpa) -International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Patrick Baumann, the secretary general of basketball‘s world governing body FIBA, has died at the Youth Olympics. He was 51.

"Despite receiving immediate medical attention, he suddenly and unexpectedly succumbed to a heart attack" at the Games in Buenos Aires, FIBA said.

"Basketball has lost a leader, an advocate and a friend and our thoughts are with Patrick‘s wife and two children at this tragic time."

The IOC said the Swiss official, who had been secretary general of FIBA since 2002, was a "central figure in the Olympic Movement."

IOC president Thomas Bach said: "This is a great shock, which has hit us all very hard.

"We can hardly believe this terrible news. Particularly since, even today, we have seen him working hard, as we always knew him, for the sport he loved.

"We lose a young and sympathetic leader full of hope who was standing for the future of sport. Our thoughts are with his wife, his children and his family."

The Olympic flag will be flown at half-mast at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne and at the IOC headquarters at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires for three days. The IOC will also hold a memorial in the Youth Olympic Village.
