World leaders sent their congratulations to Joe Biden on Sunday (Nov 8) after the Democrat won the US presidency over Republican Donald Trump.

AP, CNN, NBC News and CBS News called the race in Biden's favour, after projecting he had won the decisive state of Pennsylvania. 

Biden, 77, is the oldest candidate ever elected to the White House. Trump, 74, has made as yet unsubstantiated claims of massive voter fraud, and his campaign has launched legal challenges in several states.

Biden spent eight years as vice president to Barack Obama. His victory comes in his third run for the nation's highest office.
