Beta V.1.0 - Powered by automated translation

Joe Biden won the 270 Electoral College votes when he secured Pennsylvania on Saturday, having overturned a deficit that, at one point, was about 500,000 votes.

Nevada was also called for the now President-elect less than an hour afterwards.

Arizona has been called for Biden by the Associated Press but many other media organisations are still unsure, and it remains a tight battle.

Georgia is the surprise package with the traditionally Republican state only having a narrow lead for Donald Trump.
