US presidential debate: World media hails Clinton as winner

Several express concern at Mr Trump's claim that the election will be rigged and at his threat that he may refuse to accept the outcome if he loses.

These concerns are summed up succinctly by a headline in France's Le Point: "Trump can no longer win, but can refuse to admit defeat".

Donald Trump's mission: Make Clinton's life hell for the next month

Capping the most devastating 48 hours of his presidential campaign, Trump stunned the country on Sunday by convening a press conference with women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct and calling the former president an abuser of women in a nationally televised debate.

And the winner of the presidential debate is... Ken Bone

Ken Bone.

The debate, in case you missed it, was a town hall-style affair where audience members (screened by Gallup and selected by the moderators) asked questions of the candidates. And in that group of well-behaved, articulate, truth seekers was one Mr. Bone.

His question to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was a doozy: "What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job layoffs?"

But that wasn't why Bone became the Internet's insta-darling.

Who, What, Why: Did Donald Trump use the word ‘bigly’?

There was a moment in the first US presidential debate when lots of people asked themselves: "Did Trump just say 'bigly'?"

Followed quickly by: "Is that even a word?"

It came during a discussion on fiscal policy, when, Donald Trump told his opponent: "I'm going to cut taxes bigly, and you're going to raise taxes bigly." Or so many thought, anyway.

What Clinton and Trump's clothes tell us about them

When Hillary Clinton takes the stage at the first presidential debate, she will make history. Over the past few months the level of scrutiny faced by the first female candidate for president of the United States has ramped up: her policies, her emails, her relationships have been critiqued, dissected and analysed. And so have her clothes.

US presidential debate: Who is moderator Lester Holt?

So who is the man asking the questions - and what does he have in store?

High profile

Lester Holt's CV includes major network shows such as Dateline NBC, Today, and his current role as anchor of NBC Nightly News, which attracts millions of viewers every night.

That makes him a national celebrity, and well used to high-stakes TV.

He has already been accused of political bias, when Mr Trump labelled him a Democrat and complained about the "unfair system".
