Trump election: US 'identifies agents behind Russian hack'

The agents, whose names have not been released, are alleged to have sent stolen Democratic emails to WikiLeaks to try to swing the vote for Mr Trump.

Intelligence officials are due to brief Mr Trump, who doubts the claims, later.

Trump election: Request for Wisconsin vote recount sent

The request was filed by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.

Dr Stein has also pledged to file vote recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

A win by Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin alone would not overturn Mr Trump's lead - it provides only 10 votes in the crucial electoral college that gave him victory in the 8 November election.

But wins in Wisconsin, Michigan (16 electoral votes) and Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes) would have clinched the presidency for the Democrat.

"We are ready to welcome him with open arms," Antonio Cerio, the mayor of Ferrazzano, told local media.

De Niro has used strong language to describe Mr Trump, saying he would like "to punch him in the face".

His remarks contrasted with other EU leaders' more muted reaction to the Tuesday's shock election result.
