London: Sadiq Khan, the son of a bus driver, became London's first Muslim mayor on Friday.

Khan is yet to receive official notification of his victory, which would go some way to soothing the wounds of Labour which suffered losses in Thursday's other local elections.

Khan will replace Conservative Boris Johnson, who has run the city of 8.6 million people for eight years.

The newly appointed Mayor thanked all his supporters on twitter.
