Six weeks after winning the polls, the Republican has secured the 270 votes needed to formalise his victory.

The voting process is usually a formality, but was clouded this year by claims that Russian hackers tried to sway the presidential election.

The result will be officially announced on 6 January in a special joint session of Congress.
