Tributes from former US presidents and across the political spectrum have poured in for Republican Senator John McCain, who has died aged 81. Barack Obama, who beat him to the White House in 2008, said they had shared a “fidelity to something higher”. George W Bush described him as “a patriot of the highest order”.
Brazil’s President Michel Temer appeared keen to demonstrate on Thursday he had recovered from his latest bout of ill health, inviting the press to photograph him during a brisk walk in a Brasilia park. Temer, 77, last month underwent a “minor surgical procedure” to resolve a urethral obstruction at the Sirio-Libanes Hospital in Sao Paulo.
