US President Barack Obama has won the presidential vote in Florida - widening his electoral victory margin over Republican rival, Mitt Romney.

The vote count in the only state which had not declared a result from Tuesday's election gave Obama 50% to Romney's 49.1%, according to Florida state department figures.

Obama has now won 332 electoral college votes while Romney has 206.

The slow count brought back memories of the bitterly contested recount in 2000.
