Joe Biden leads US President Donald Trump by 50 electoral votes, closing in on the magic number of 270 – and with it the keys to the White House. The Trump campaign has mounted legal challenges, with votes still being counted and five states in play.
Five states undecided: Biden leads in Arizona and Nevada, Trump in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia.
Trump suing to stop vote counting in Pennsylvania, has announced similar lawsuit in Michigan and seeking Wisconsin recount.
Biden has won Wisconsin (10 electoral votes) and Michigan (16 votes), according to our reporters.
Trump has predicted a “big win”, claiming – without evidence – that Democrats are trying to “steal” the election.
