Former president S R Nathan, 92, is Singapore’s longest-serving head of state. Many Singaporeans, young and old, will remember him as the gracious president who was a key player in bringing Singapore to where she is today.

As tributes continue pouring in, here’s ours: remembering the man who fought the odds to achieve miracles.
