Former US president Barack Obama has had a stretch of road in Los Angeles named after him.
'Obama Boulevard' has replaced 'Rodeo Road', which runs across the city's historic black neighbourhood.
A concert and ceremony has been held to mark the occasion.

The change to the name has been a long time coming as the LA City Countil voted 15-0 to make the switch in August 2018.
It was proposed by City Council President Herb Wesson, and in a statement he said:
"With this change, we are publicly documenting what Obama’s legacy as our nation’s first black President means to our city and our South Los Angeles community."
