Joe Biden has been declared as the President-elect of the United States, and while the incumbent is currently looking for ways to stop that from coming to fruition, the consensus is that the 78-year old will be the country's 46th president.
It is a result that has delighted the vast majority of onlookers throughout the globe, for fairly obvious reasons.
Of course, the Irish connection made Biden a favourite for many in this part of the world. His great-great grandfather Patrick Blewitt hails from Ballina, while his other great-great grandfather Owen Finnegan hailed from Louth.
In fact, he is actually a distant relative of the Kearney brothers, even congratulating 'cousin' Rob Kearney on Twitter after Ireland's historic win over New Zealand in 2016.
Congrats to you Mr President 🤣 https://t.co/01pVm0dosu

Biden has spoken about his Irish roots on a number of occasions, doing so once again after his status as President-elect was confirmed.
During a media scrum today, Biden was by a BBC reporter for a word for the British broadcasters. You're going to love his response.

Reporter: Mr Biden, a quick word for the BBC?
Biden: The BBC? I'm Irish!

“Mr Biden, a word for the BBC!?!”
