Brazilian lorry drivers who support outgoing President Jair Bolsonaro have blocked roads across the country, after his poll defeat to leftist rival Luíz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Blockages were reported in all but two states, causing considerable disruption and affecting food supply chains.

With all the votes counted, Lula had 50.9% of the valid votes against Bolsonaro’s 49.1% in Sunday’s run-off.

The incumbent far-right president has neither conceded defeat nor challenged the results that divided the nation.
