After meeting Hillary Clinton in Cleveland, Ohio, Paul McCartney took to social media to show his support for the Democrat.

"She’s with me," the singer-songwriter tweeted, alongside a picture of the pair, twisting around her campaign slogan "I’m With Her".

The Beatles star is the latest celebrity to publicly show his favour for Ms Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election, following endorsements from a swathe of personalities like Lena Dunham and Katy Perry.

McCartney posted the picture after meeting the Democratic nominee while she was on the campaign trail at the Quicken Loans Arena.

McCartney, MBE, was in Cleveland to perform at two shows as part of his "One on One" tour.

A Clinton aide told CNN that the pair talked about the election, their families and the Olympics.

Ms Clinton also met his wife, Nancy, for about half an hour.

McCartney is a British citizen so will not be able to vote for Ms Clinton come November.

She's with me. #PaulMcCartney #HillaryClinton
