Brazil's president Dilma Rousseff wins second term

Left-leaning Dilma Rousseff has been re-elected president of Brazil, after securing more than 51% of votes in a closely-fought election.

An official count showed her rival, centrist candidate Aecio Neves, taking just over 48% of the vote.

With less than 2% of votes left to be counted, there are not enough votes to allow Mr Neves to catch up with Ms Rousseff.
