Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov says he will resign after accepting that the opposition has won a run-off presidential election.

Exit polls showed opposition Socialists-backed candidate General Rumen Radev taking 58% of the vote in Sunday's ballot.

Mr Borisov said: "We accept the will of the people and we congratulate those who have the support of the majority of the voters."
