“And so, I have every faith in the future achievements of the talented athletes and wish the team every success at Tokyo 2020. I am really going to miss working with the team and the gifted athletes.”
Commenting on Green’s departure GB Taekwondo’s Performance Director, Gary Hall, said: “Paul has enjoyed unprecedented success as a coach.
“He has contributed to our mission of creating a world-class programme which is the envy of the taekwondo world.
“We would like to thank Paul for his great contribution and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.
“At GB Taekwondo, we have a great team of experienced coaches and support staff and are confident of further success on the journey to Tokyo.”
