US Election 2012: Barack Obama re-elected as US president

Obama tells enthralled crowd in Chicago 'the best is yet to come'

Barack Obama has been re-elected US president for a second term as the challenge of Mitt Romney fell by the wayside this morning.

As the win was announced by TV networks across America President Obama tweeted his gratitude to his supporters, hailing 'four more years' and posting a picture of himself locked in an embrace with his wife Michelle.

President Obama, addressing crowds in Chicago after Romney officially conceded, said: "For the United States of America, the best is yet to come.

"It moves forward because of you. You reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression."

In a tribute to his wife, Obama said: "I want to say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more.

"I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you too as our nation's first lady."
