Barack Obama has officially thrown his support behind Hillary Clinton.

In a video statement released on Clinton's official Twitter account, the US President praised her judgement and commitment.

The statement comes shortly after Bernie Sanders vowed to stay in the Democratic race, after meeting with Obama.

Over 14,000 people are today attending a Muslim prayer service in Louisville, Kentucky, for Muhammad Ali. The service started at 12pm(local time).

His funeral procession will travel through Louisville, including along Muhammad Ali Boulevard, to a private burial tomorrow.

The multi‐faith memorial service will take place Friday afternoon (local time), where Bill Clinton, Billy Crystal, Will Smith and Malcolm X’s eldest daughter will be part of the ceremony.
