Video of US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris finding out she and running mate Joe Biden had won the election has instantly gone viral.
“We did it, we did it Joe,” Ms Harris is seen saying on the phone, a huge grin spreading across her face.
Decked out in a Nike jacket and headphones, it appears that Ms Harris was heading out for a morning run when she received the news.
US Democratic nominee Mr Biden passed the required threshold of 270 electoral votes on Saturday morning, US time, after he was declared the winner in the key state of Pennsylvania.
He will now be the 46th President of the United States.

“You’re going to be the next president of the Unites States,” Ms Harris said over the phone, before erupting into excited laughter.
The 8-second video soon went viral on Twitter, with 25 million views at time of writing.
It was posted four hours ago, soon after Mr Biden’s win became official.
The Democratic victory is momentous, especially for Harris, who will become the first woman and first woman of colour as Vice President of the United States.
The New York Times wrote that “Ms Harris, 56, embodies the future of a country that is growing more racially diverse, even if the person voters picked for the top of the ticket is a 77-year-old white man.”
“I am honoured and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in vice President-elect Harris,” Mr Biden said in a statement.
“In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.
“With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.
“It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.
“We are the United States of America. And there’s nothing we can’t do, if we do it together.”
Mr Biden is expected to address the American people in the coming hours.
