Shortly after their fist bump, Joe Biden officially became the 46th President of the United States when he was sworn in during his inauguration ceremony at the Capitol today (20 January), taking over from Donald Trump - who was not present at the event.
Reciting the presidential oath, Mr Biden said: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
He then went on to address the nation, assuring the country that 'democracy had prevailed' after a troubling few weeks and months.
Mr Biden said: "A new America has risen to the challenge today. We celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause, the cause of democracy.
"The people, the will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heeded.
"We've learnt again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. At this hour, our friends democracy has prevailed."
