Celebrations broke out across Tehran and other cities late last night after moderate cleric Hasan Rowhani was declared the winner of Iran's presidential vote.
Thousands of Rowhani supporters took to the streets leading to his campaign headquarters in Tehran before the final results were announced despite a statement from Rowhani urging his supporters to avoid street gatherings.
There were no immediate reports of unrest or attempts by security forces to rein in the crowds - another sign of the sweeping scope of Rowhani's victory with more than three times as many votes as his nearest rival.
