U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has endorsed former rival Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee for the US presidential election.

"Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process," Sanders said to cheers in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

"And I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States.

"Addressing the very serious crises that we face... there is no doubt in my mind that as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is by far and away the best candidate to do that."
