Left-leaning Dilma Rousseff has been re-elected president of Brazil, after securing more than 51% of votes in a closely-fought election.

An official count showed her rival, centrist candidate Aecio Neves, taking just over 48% of the vote.

Rousseff, in power since 2010, is popular with poor Brazilians because of her government's welfare policies.

Both candidates made economic growth and lifting Brazilians out of poverty central to their election campaigns.

With less than 2% of votes left to be counted, there are not enough votes to allow Neves to catch up with Rousseff.
