Cyril Ramaphosa has been appointed South Africa's President a day after embattled leader Jacob Zuma resigned.

He was the only candidate nominated by parliament, which is dominated by his African National Congress. MPs broke into song at the announcement.

In his first presidential speech, Ramaphosa, 65, said he would tackle the corruption which allegedly became widespread under Zuma.

The ANC had told Zuma to step down or face a vote of no-confidence.
