Hillary Clinton has claimed victory in the race to become the Democratic Party's candidate for the White House. President Obama has called to congratulate her on securing enough delegates to contest November's election. She'll be the first woman to run for president for any major political party in the US.

Chelsea and their former manager, Jose Mourinho, have reached a settlement with the former team doctor, Eva Carneiro.

On Monday it emerged she'd turned down an earlier settlement offer of almost two million dollars.
