Early exit polls in Brazil’s presidential election suggest the far-right candidate, Jair Bolsonaro, will win the first round.

However, he looks set to fall just short of the 50% of valid votes needed to win outright.

If the exit polls are confirmed, he will face Fernando Haddad from the left-wing Workers’ Party in the second round on 28 October.

Mr Bolsonaro is projected to take 45% of the vote and Mr Haddad 28%.
