Barack Obama has warned of a "rise in a crude sort of nationalism" following the Brexit and US presidential votes.

Speaking in Greece on his final foreign trip, he said that they have to guard against... tribalism built around an 'us' or a 'them'."

He also put the victory of Donald Trump down to "the view of the American people to just shake things up".
