Biden victory confirmed in Georgia

US President-elect Joe Biden's victory in Georgia has been confirmed by a recount, as legal efforts by president Donald Trump's allies to challenge his defeat were dismissed in three states.
 
The Democrat beat his Republican rival in Georgia by 12,284 votes.
 
Mr. Biden said Mr. Trump knew he was not going to win and had shown incredible irresponsibility by not conceding.
 
The Democrat is set to take office in January as the 46th US president.
 
Mr. Biden's victory margin in the public vote overall stands at more than 5.9 million.
 
His victory in the US Electoral College system, which determines who becomes president, is projected to be 306 to 232 - far above the 270 he needs to win.
