Fresh off winning the 2020 US Election, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been named TIME Magazine's joint Person of the Year.
The magazine's editor-in-chief noted the President-elect and Vice President-elect won the honour for 'changing the American story, for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of division, for sharing a vision of healing in a grieving world'.
The publication elects one person or group at the end of the year who it believes has been the most newsworthy or noteworthy.
It's not necessarily an endorsement of the winner's beliefs or actions, but it is an acknowledgment that they dominated headlines across the year and made a huge impact on the discussions people had.
US top doctor Dr Anthony Fauci was named as one of TIME's Guardians of the Year, along with Black Lives Matter advocates Porche Bennett-Bey and Assa Traore.
Basketballer LeBron James won Sportsperson of the Year, and K-Pop group BTS collectively won Entertainer of the Year, while Zoom founder Eric Yuan was declared Businessperson of the Year.
