The outgoing President was dewy-eyed as he made his emotional farewell after eight years at the White House.

And it was his words to Michelle which proved most powerful.

He said: "You took on a role you didn't ask for and you made it your own with grace and with grit and with style and with good humour.

"You mad the White House a place that belongs to everybody and a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model.

"So, you have made me proud and you have made the country proud"
