"Hardliner Ebrahim Raisi has won Iran’s presidential election in a race that was widely seen as being designed to favour him.

He thanked Iranians for their support, after securing 62% of the votes.

Mr Raisi is Iran’s top judge and holds ultra-conservative views. He is under US sanctions and has been linked to past executions of political prisoners.

Iran’s president is the second-highest ranking official in the country, after the supreme leader."
