Former New York congressman Anthony Weiner has tearfully pleaded guilty to sending obscene material to a minor.

He must register as a sex offender and faces a possible prison term for exchanging explicit texts with a 15-year-old girl last year.

The 52-year-old's estranged wife, Huma Abedin, filed for divorce on Friday after seven years of marriage.

Weiner quit Congress in 2011 over a sex scandal and was again exposed in his 2013 run for New York mayor.

He was reportedly wearing his wedding band as he entered his plea on Friday morning at a Manhattan court.

Weiner was released on bail, pending sentencing on 8 September.
