Doubts have been cast over Joe Biden’s candidacy during Thursday evening’s debate against former President Donald Trump, with slurred words, unfinished sentences and an angry outburst that rattled his supporters and sparked media reaction.

In an editorial, the prestigious US daily New York Times portrayed Mr Biden as “a shadow of a leader” after he “failed his own test” during the televised battle.

“The greatest public service Mr. Biden could do today is to announce that he will not seek re-election,” wrote the editorial board, though he is “an admirable president.”
