, Lee Kuan Yew, who died on Monday aged 91, was renowned for his sharp tongue, quick wit and controversial remarks. Here are a selection of his comments:


ON DEATH


"Even from my sick bed, even if you are going to lower me into the grave and I feel something is going wrong, I will get up."


ON GOVERNMENT


"I am often accused of interfering in the private lives of citizens. Yes, if I did not, had I not done that

, we wouldn't be here today. And I say without the slightest remorse, that we wouldn't be here, we would not have made economic progress, if we had not intervened on very personal matters who your neighbour is, how you live, the noise you make, how you spit, or what language you use. We decide what is right. Never mind what the people think." (National Day Rally in 1986)


ON PRESS FREEDOM


"Go on the Internet

, you can publish your party's views, you can produce your party magazines, your party newspapers, nothing to prevent you from doing all that. But if you commit anything libellous, we'll sue you. Anything which is untrue and defamatory, we will take action.


"The foreign media used to say we are dull, sterile, no fun

, no buzz, now they are moving away from these descriptions. But we are not moving away from our base positions. We are not going to quail under their sustained attacks. If you quail, you're weak and a fool."


ON DEMOCRACY


"In new countries, democracy has worked and produced results only when there is an honest and effective government, which means a people smart enough to elect such a government. Remember, elected governments are only as good as people who choose them."


ON HOMOSEXUALITY:


Sex between two men is illegal in Singapore and punishable with up to two years in prison, though it is rarely enforced.


During an interview with CNN in 1998 he said:


"Well, it's not a matter which I can decide or any government can decide. It's a question of what a society considers acceptable. And as you know

, Singaporeans are by and large a very conservative, orthodox society, a very, I would say, completely different from, say, the United States, and I don't think an aggressive gay rights movement would help. But what we are doing as a government is to leave people to live their own lives so long as they don't impinge on other people. I mean

, we don't harass anybody."


Then in 2011 in his book Hard Truths, he said:


"No, it's not a lifestyle. You can read the books you want, all the articles. There's a genetic difference so it is not a matter of choice. They are born that way and that's that. So if two men or two women are that way, just leave them alone."


ON GOLF


"I used to play golf, but found it did not give me vitality because it's a slothful game.


"Nine holes of golf will take you one-and-a-half, two hours. I run in 20 minutes, I feel better off. So the cost benefit made me drop golf."


ON CHEWING GUM


Singapore banned the sale of chewing gum in 1992

, citing littering - sticking used gum on tables and chairs - as well as vandalism. Passengers reportedly started sticking chewing gum on the door sensors of commuter trains, disrupting services.


"If you can't think because you can't chew, try a banana."


ON SINGAPORE


"Singapore is my concern till the end of my life. Why should I not want Singapore to continue to succeed?


"I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There's nothing more that I need to do."

BUENOS AIRES, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- Wrestling has been included in the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Games in a secret ballot by the International Olympic Committee on Sunday.


Wrestling won back its spot in the Olympic program after beating bids from squash and baseballsoftball, garnering 49 votes out of 95.


Wrestling, which featured in the ancient Olympics and in every modern Games apart from 1900

, had been surprisingly taken off the Games in February.


Baseballsoftball, not on the program since 2008, got 24 votes, while squash, which has never featured in the Olympics, had 22.


Earlier in the day, the IOC approved the 25 core sports at Summer Games with a 77-16 majority.


"Thank you for this opportunity of saving our sport," wrestling federation FILA president Nenad Lalovic told the IOC.


"This is the most important day in our 3

,000-year history. Remaining in the Olympics is crucial for wrestling's survival."


FILA has made extraordinary progress since being provisionally dropped by the IOC, changing its leadership, making the management more democratic and transparent and revising competition rules.


"We made mistakes and admitted to them," Lalovic said while answering the questions from IOC members after the 20-minute presentation.


WANNING, South China, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Sacha Modolo of Lampre-Merida (LAM) won the 2015 Tour of Hainan on Wednesday and the last stage victory went to Brenton Jones from Drapac Professional Cycling (DPC).


After nine days of racing, Modolo beat Andrey Zeits from Astana Pro Team (AST), who placed second at last

, by nine seconds in the general individual classification, becoming the seventh man to win the annual tournament which was 10 years old.


With a lead of up to seven sprint points, Modolo also took the green jersey for the best printer in this event.


Zeits had the blue jersey for the best Asian rider, and Julien El Fares from Team Marseille-13-KTM (M13) kept the polka-dot jersey as the best climber.


Jones took his only stage win as he stormed home first in the last and ninth stage from Wuzhi Moutain to Wanning, which covered 119 kilometers with two intermediate sprints and.
