Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has urged Egyptians to work to restore stability after being declared the winner of last week's presidential election.

The former army chief said he wanted "freedom" and "social justice", echoing the slogan of the 2011 revolution.

Sisi spoke after election officials announced that he had received 96.9% of the vote and his sole challenger, left-winger Hamdeen Sabahi, only 3.1%.

The retired field marshal overthrew President Mohammed Morsi last July.
