US election: what happened overnight and what to keep an eye on now

Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s election battle looks set to go to the wire as results continue rolling in from a number of key swing states.

In a big boost for the incumbent, Trump has retained Florida and leads in Pennsylvania, where around 65% of votes have been counted so far.

But a number of routes to the White House are still open to Biden, who has secured a key win in Arizona.

What do we know so far?

This hard-fought election is far closer than pollsters had predicted.

The biggest win so far is that by Trump in Florida, which carries 29 electoral college votes.
