Iranians are waiting for the results from Friday's presidential election, likely to be later than expected after voting was extended for five hours.

 

 

Officials pushed back voting deadlines four times, with long queues outside polling stations well into the evening.

 

The election will decide a successor to outgoing leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

 

His eight years in power have been characterised by economic turmoil and Western sanctions against Iran over its controversial nuclear programme.
