Lausanne - IOC president Jacques Rogge has returned to work a month after undergoing hip replacement surgery.

Rogge was back at IOC headquarters in Lausanne on Monday for the first time since having the operation in early September.

International Olympic Committee spokesperson Emmanuelle Moreau said Rogge "is back in the office this morning, chairing a series of internal meetings."

Rogge, who was elected IOC president in 2001, will step down when his term expires in September 2013.
