Donald Trump's running mate has said they will "absolutely accept" the result of the election - despite the Republican candidate's claims that it is rigged against them.

Mr Trump spent much of the last week claiming the media was conspiring with his rival, Hillary Clinton, to undermine his chances as he sought to deflect allegations that he sexually assaulted a number of women.

But yesterday, Mike Pence, Mr Trump's running mate, gave the undertaking to accept the outcome even as Mr Trump continued to claim that all was not well.

"We'll respect the outcome of this election," he said. "The peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of American history."
