Sam, the head of the country's Olympic governing body, was speaking on the cabinet reshuffle announced by President Jacob Zuma in Pretoria on Sunday.

"We welcome Minister Mbalula and as the country's sports movement we stand ready to carry out his wishes and dreams of making South Africa a sporting nation that will be respected globally," said Sam.

Sam also had kind words for the departing Sports and Recreation Minister Makhenkesi Stofile.

"We must thank Minister Stofile for his enormous contribution to sport as well as his guidance down the years. We also hope that his vast sporting knowledge will not be lost to the country and can still be utilised in some form.

"For now though, the 2012 Olympics in London get ever closer and Minister Mbalula will be a key part of our drive for success in this regard."
