Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.
In a scaled-back ceremony in Washington DC, the 78-year-old became the oldest US president in history, while Kamala Harris became the first woman, the first Black person, and first Asian American to serve as vice president.
"This is America's day. This is democracy's day," Biden said in his inauguration speech.

"A day of history and hope, of renewal and resolve, through a crucible for the ages, America has been tested anew and America has risen to the challenge.
"Today we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate but of a cause: the cause of democracy. At this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed."
Due to security concerns following the Capitol riots and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the inauguration was like no other.
