Cyril Ramaphosa elected ANC leader in close-run vote

Veteran South African politician Cyril Ramaphosa has been chosen as the new leader of the country's ANC party, after a fierce, nailbiting race.

The programme aims to prevent asylum seekers from risking their lives at sea. And jostling for the top prize in African football: Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are competing for the African "Ballon d'Or".
