The four-day vote count has finally ended.

Democrat Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States.

It comes after Mr Biden won the key state of Pennsylvania, which brought him to the 270 votes needed to win the race.

But Donald Trump has refused to accept the result and concede defeat, taking to Twitter to falsely claim he “won this election”.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has taken to social media to congratulate Mr Biden and incoming vice-president, Kamala Harris.
