Cuba's parliament has picked Raúl Castro's right-hand man, Miguel Díaz-Canel, as the sole candidate to succeed him, ending the family's long rule.
 
Castro took over as president from his ailing brother Fidel in 2006.
 
An improvement in relations with the US which began under Barack Obama has been partially reversed since Donald Trump entered the White House.
 
Castro is expected to remain a powerful influence in the communist state even after he steps down.
