As Nick Clegg took the place of David Cameron at Prime Minister's Questions he sent his congratulations to President Obama.
His sentiments were greeted with cheers from both sides of the House, leading the Deputy Prime Minister to quip that those would be the only cheers he received from the Labour benches:
I'm sure the House will wish to join me in congratulating President Obama on election victory last night.
I suspect that's the only point I'll be cheered today by the benches opposite.
But we look forward to continuing the Government's work with him in building a more prosperous, a more free and a more stable world.
