Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said he will pray for America following the "bitter" presidential campaign that saw Donald Trump elected to the White House.

The archbishop said he hoped Mr Trump would be given "wisdom, insight and grace" as he faces the challenges of the next four years.

Mr Welby said: "As president-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office, my continuing prayers are that the United States of America may find reconciliation after a bitter campaign, and that Mr Trump may be given wisdom, insight and grace as he faces the tasks before him.

"Together we pray for all the people of the United States."
