|Sadiq Khan makes history as elected London mayor after bruising campaign |
The son of a Pakistani bus driver, Sadiq Khan was confirmed as London's new mayor on Saturday after a bruising election campaign.
Khan, 45, will be the first Muslim to lead a major western capital.
His election secured a much-needed win for his opposition Labour Party amid mixed results in local elections and saw off a Conservative rival who attempted to link Khan to extremism.
