In the United States, President Biden has given his first official press conference since his swearing in.

At 65 days after taking office he lagged behind his predecessors considerably, Barack Obama waited 20 days to face journalists and Donald Trump only a week.

A small group of socially distanced reporters gathered in the east room of the White House to grill the president on gun control, voting rights, immigration and foreign policy.
