It's been a long, long counting process, but finally, the results are in: JOE BIDEN IS THE NEW PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Yep, despite Donald Trump insisting on Twitter that he has actually won the election...'by a lot'...he has in fact, lost, and Joe Biden will take the hot seat in the White House for the next four years.

Eventually, the result filtered down on Saturday evening, confirming that Trump had lost out by a considerable margin to his opponent Biden. Although this perfectly edited tweet below may suggest that the decision was confirmed via a 'Comunicado Oficial' from the White House, the truth was far less entertaining than that.

Of course, plenty of Tweeters took great pleasure in the managerial change, with one user channeling his inner 'young Jose Mourinho', pointing to the sky and charging around like a headless chicken.

One man who needs to find any avenue possible to remain relevant during the autumn months is Fabrizio Romano, and the transfer guru offered his trademark 'here we go' on the election results. Classic Fab.

German football followers were clearly delighted that the outcome of the big election had finally been decided before 'Der Klassiker', the huge derby between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

Out of Context Football Manager also enjoyed the departure of Mr. Trump, encouraging its followers to get naked in the sacred name of wonderkids. To be fair, there is nothing quite like uncovering the next Lionel Messi in the Uruguayan second division, and pouring your heart and soul into his development, is there?

USA Women's stars Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan took to Twitter to show their pride in the American people and praise the overwhelming success of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who became the first female VP in American history.

They weren't the only ones, with Meghan Klingenberg and Mia Hamm also showing their support for the new duo!

And breathe everyone, it's over - for the next four years, anyway.
