US election: Joe Biden made official Democratic candidate

Washington Correspondent

President Trump’s rival Joe Biden has been picked as the Democratic candidate to run against him in the election in November.

Mr Biden was officially nominated at the party’s convention last night.

But he wasn’t the star of the show. His wife Jill, a former English teacher, delivered a headline address from an empty classroom.
