Egypt's ex-PM Ahmed Shafiq has said he is confident of a legitimate victory, in his first news conference since last weekend's presidential run-off vote.

He accused rival Mohammed Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood of "playing games" to pressurise the electoral authorities before the result was declared.

The election commission has delayed announcing the result to consider complaints from both candidates.

Mursi himself declared victory on Monday not long after the polls closed.
