Bernie Sanders has dropped out of the US presidential race, leaving Joe Biden as the likely Democratic nominee to take on Donald Trump.

The Vermont senator has ended his campaign after disappointing primary results.

Mr Sanders told his supporters via a livestream on Wednesday: "I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of volunteers who knocked on doors, millions of them, in the freezing winters of Iowa and New Hampshire, and in the heat, and in South Carolina, and in states throughout the country.

"I want to thank the two million Americans who have contributed financially to our campaign."
